Fatality Notice: IHSA has learned of a construction-related fatality in Sudbury involving a construction worker securing a transport trailer load. One workplace fatality is one too many, regardless of the sector, industry, or occupation. Please take a moment to think about those who have died or been injured on the job and re-establish a commitment to the prevention of injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

Transportation Safety Groups

Safety Groups is a program administered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). Companies join a Safety Group to share best safety practices, pool their experience, and help one another with their prevention programs. Each member firm works to achieve specific objectives and improve safety performance.

In return, the WSIB treats each Safety Group as one large firm and applies an experience-rating formula to the group’s performance. If the group as a whole achieves a pre-set number of objectives, the WSIB rewards the group with rebates on top of the member firms’ usual experience-rating assessment. There are no penalties if the group doesn’t succeed.

It doesn’t matter whether your company is large or small, with good safety performance or poor performance. What matters is your commitment to improve. For more information, download the WSIB's Safety Groups Brochure

IHSA has three Safety Groups that you can join—Construction/Electrical & Utilities, and Transportation.

For more information on the Transportation Safety Group, contact Mike Legault at 905-933-5584 or mlegault@ihsa.ca or Ivan Rodriguez at 416-735-0755 or irodriguez@ihsa.ca.
