Health & Safety Workwell Evaluations

  • December 23, 2016

We want to keep you informed of some initiatives that the WSIB is undertaking with respect to Health & Safety. As some of you know the WSIB began approaching a few Schedule 2 Employers earlier this year offering to conduct Workwell evaluations with an emphasis on the prevention of Noise Induced Hearing loss claims. To date we are not aware of any Schedule 2 firms that have actually agreed to participate in a Workwell evaluation with the WSIB.

Value for Money Audit

  • August 27, 2015

The WSIB has retained the services of Ernst & Young, Auditors to do a Value for Money Audit on WSIB Schedule 2 services and operations at the WSIB. The time frame for this audit is extremely short with a target date for a draft report at the end of August and a final report to the WSIB Board of Directors by early October. Ernst & Young will be contacting individual Schedule 2 Employers to schedule an interview or to participate in a survey. The Schedule 2 executive will be meeting with the auditors tomorrow to have some discussions and to answer their questions. The Schedule 2 executive is concerned that the audit is too rushed and that the auditors may not have received an adequate briefing on Schedule 2 and the issues. We will aim to provide the auditors with a better understanding of all the issues of concern to Schedule 2 employers. We also plan to provide them with more background documents and a paper to support the interests of Schedule 2 employers.
