WSIB Excellence Program with OSG

Topics

The WSIB Excellence Program with OSG aims to help organizations improve their health & safety program and get rewarded for doing so. WSIB’s Excellence Program consists of 36 health and safety topics that are subdivided into 3 levels: Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced

After you enroll in the program, you will be invited to complete an assessment to provide a snapshot of your existing health & safety program. The assessment can help you decide whether you should focus on Foundation, Intermediate, or Advanced level topics. Your OSG Advisor can also help you select topics.
