Benefits of Workwell
Applying health and safety and disability management best practices is worth it, regardless of the size or type of your business. The time, energy and resources you put toward having a good health and safety management system and return-to-work program are much less than the costs of accident recovery and the related effects on your business (i.e., customer service, resource replacement, WSIB premium costs, reduced production, quality, etc.).
Employers who take part in WSIB Workwell Program and make improvements to their workplace health and safety management systems and return-to-work programs have fewer injuries, illnesses and reduced lost time. These things all lead to customer service continuity, improved production and better quality, less downtime, improved employee morale and greater profit.
Also, employers with better injury and lost-time experience records are eligible for rebates and decreased premiums through their experience rating program (NEER, MAP, or CAD-7).
