Now, in its second year, WSIB’s Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards recognized outstanding health and safety programs in small businesses with fewer than 50 employees.

The bronze was awarded to family-operated Kingston bakery, Bread and Butter owned by Wendy Whitall.

Nominated businesses were judged on their performance in safety culture and leadership, hazard identification and control and workplace mental health, among other criteria.
The panel of judges included representatives from Canadian Federation of Independent Business, Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of Economic Development and Growth, Ministry of Labour and WSIB. The winning businesses were awarded cash prizes - $5,000 for gold, $3,000 for silver and $2,000 for bronze.
The winners are encouraged to reinvest the financial awards in their health and safety management system.
Nominated businesses were judged on their performance in the following categories:

  • Safety culture and leadership
  • Inspections process and documentation
  • Hazard identification and control
  • Employee health and safety engagement
  • Return-to-work programs
  • Workplace mental health
  • Workplace violence, harassment and discrimination

Small businesses registered with the WSIB were eligible to apply or could be nominated by individuals or local associations that support small businesses. The award nomination period was open between April 7 and June 22, 2018.

The panel of judges included representatives from Canadian Federation of Independent Business, Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of Economic Development and Growth, Ministry of Labour and the WSIB.

Congratulations to Bread and Butter, the winners of the bronze 2018 Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards.
