I am pleased to report that this information has just become available and the Northern Ontario Safety Group members will be sharing in a $1,238,347.23 rebate on Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) premiums for the 2017 program year. 

In 2017, workplace injury statistics for the group, comprised of 74 Ontario businesses, showed an increase in lost-time injury frequency rate of 0.29 in 2017, compared to 0.14 in 2016 and a continued year-over-year reduction in injury severity rate to 10.52 in 2017, compared to 10.89 in 2016. These achievements along with the results of the 2017 validation audits resulted in a group rebate of 2.79 per cent out of a possible 5 per cent. 

These results are a true testament to the positive work of all complementing staff and their firms that contribute and continue to support our Northern Ontario Safety Group and improved health and safety program performance.
