July 6, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

July 6, 2022 – Submissions are being accepted right now for WSIB’s Elizabeth Witmer Small Business Health & Safety Leadership Awards, and the prize money has been doubled.

This year, winners will receive $10,000 (Gold), $6000 (Silver) and $4000 (Bronze).

“We know how hard these small businesses work to keep their employees healthy and safe, and how difficult the pandemic has been for many of them,” said WSIB’s Rodney Cook. “We wanted our prizes to reflect the huge effort they’ve put into making Ontario a safer place to work over the past year.”

These annual awards recognize the health & safety achievements of independently owned and operated businesses with fewer than 50 employees.

The deadline for submissions is July 29, 2022.
