ATTENTION – OWNERS OF FARMING OPERATIONS
Earn a 5% WSIB REBATE by attending the WSIB’s ‘Building Your Health & Safety Program’
Many owners of farming operations don’t know their health & safety responsibilities and don’t know where to start.
Increase your understanding of health and safety obligations and start to develop an effective health and safety program by attending three half-day sessions taking place on November 7, sale 14, and 22 in St. Thomas.
You could even earn a 5% WSIB premium rebate if you also develop and submit the following:
- workplace self-evaluation checklist
- health and safety action plan
- workplace inspection procedure, and
- return-to-work procedure
You will learn all about the above items during the sessions.
Details and training form
The sessions are open to owners of small to medium-sized agriculture operations registered with the WSIB and paying less than $90,000 in annual premiums.
Facilitated by Workplace Safety & Prevention Services and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), the sessions take participants through essential health and safety and return-to-work information to better manage business risks. It’s an interactive environment where you’ll learn what needs to be done and receive ready-to-use templates and resources.
The focus is on owners because the course is based on an employer’s obligations and the importance of implementing effective health and safety and return to work programs in order to prevent incidents and injuries.
This program is being geared towards Ontario’s agricultural industry so that your questions can be answered according to your own business needs. You’ll also be able to hear from other participants who are dealing with the same challenges.
