$500,000 in 2018.

The Safety Group, now in its 12th year, is an innovative, voluntary-based initiative implemented by the WSIB that offers participants benefits that include opportunities to network with fellow retailers about health and safety topics and issues, remaining in-the-know about Ontario’s health and safety legislative changes and consultations, and to decrease administrative costs around loss-time injuries and illnesses.

“It’s a fantastic initiative, and one that RCC remains proud to be a part of,” says Sonny Brar, RCC’s Vice President Member Relations and Education. “Every retailer wants to ensure a healthy and safe work environment for their employees. This Safety Group Program is an excellent way for RCC to be involved and to support our members reach their health and safety goals.”

The RCC/WSIB Safety Group program, which has been a huge success during the course of its first decade returning hundreds of thousands of dollars back to participating retailers, achieved a final score of 86% in 2018 and ranked 7th out of 24 sponsors in Ontario.
