Promote Health and Safety in the Workplace


Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) has developed and introduced a voluntary recognition program called “Supporting Ontario’s Safe Employers – SOSE”. It promotes health and safety in the workplace which helps reduce injuries and illness.
If your organization is recognized, you may also be eligible for financial incentives from the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
