WSPS earns SOSE status – and you can too

OHSMS excellence recognized; others encouraged to apply

WSPS has been working to elevate our Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS) so that it meets ISO 45001/CSA Z45001 standard requirements. In April 2022 we received our ISO-45001 Certificate.

In addition to protecting our staff, these high standards are helping us

  • deliver world-class OHS prevention.
  • achieve our strategic goals.
  • bring our vision to life: Every worker. Healthy & safe. Every day.

Beyond this, these efforts have earned us recognition by Ontario’s Chief Prevention Officer as a Safe Employer under the Supporting Ontario’s Safe Employers (SOSE) program.

Recognition means we have met the following high standards set by the Chief Prevention Officer to prevent injuries and illness in the workplace:

  • successful implementation of a CPO accredited OHSMS
  • an OHSMS third party audit
  • compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • a demonstrated commitment to worker participation and the internal responsibility system at our workplace

SOSE is a voluntary Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development program and the first of its kind in Canada.

Organizations looking to apply are encouraged to visit the Ministry’s website to learn more.
