What is HSEp?
The Health and Safety Excellence program (HSEp) helps to create a safer workplace by reducing workplace accidents.
The HSEp provides a clear roadmap to improving your workplace safety. It is a flexible program that can be tailored to your business needs – whether you are starting from scratch or want to optimize processes that are already in place.
The program consists of 36 health and safety topics spread across three levels – foundation, intermediate, and advanced. Businesses that can implement all program topics will benefit from lower workplace injury and illness rates and reduced WSIB premiums.

their health and safety action plan and receive at least $1,000 per completed topic.
Large Businesses (100+ employees)
The minimum a business can earn is $1,000 per topic or $5,000 if five topics are completed.
The maximum a business can earn is $50,000 per topic or $250,000 if five topics are completed.
Small Businesses (1-99 employees)
Small businesses can earn double the health and safety rebates, plus $1,000 for their
health and safety plan.
If a smaller business is eligible for $1,000 per topic and completes 5 topics, the maximum they can earn is $2,000 per topic or $10,000 if five topics are completed. With the additional $1,000 for their health and safety plan, they would earn a total of $11,000.
