Health & Safety

Consulting

Most business owners do not have the time or resources to manage their health and safety system on their own.

Today's reality is:

  • The average cost of a claim due to a workplace incident is more than $78,000.
  • The indirect costs associated with an incident, is a minimum of four times the direct cost, which appears on an employer's  Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) cost statement.
  • Business owners are expected to know and comply with all requirements under the legislation.
  • 25% of all businesses are paying a surcharge to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board due to higher than average incident and injury rates within their sector.
  • Most workplaces do not take advantage of the maximum rebates available to them under the WSIB incentive programs.
