2022 Platinum Recipient
Healthy Workplace®


Workplace Safety North (WSN) is a not-for-profit health and safety organization helping build safer, healthier, stronger workplaces across Ontario. For us, continuous improvement of physical and psychological health and safety at work is a way of life.

Although our name is Workplace Safety North, we have amazing staff located in over 20 communities across the province facilitating organizational improvement through health and safety education.

A trusted safety advisor, WSN and its legacy organizations have been helping make workplaces safer since 1915. Bringing three organizations together in 2010 was not easy, but today we can see how our Excellence Canada journey has shaped our current culture and made WSN a truly great place to work.

Ask any of our team members and they’ll tell you there’s something special about working at WSN.

Workplace Safety North celebrated its 10th anniversary focused on a northern theme with plaid flannel shirts.

“Given the changing nature of the workplace, the importance of creating a work environment where every member of the team feels valued, supported and safe from physical or psychological harm cannot be overstated. It is indeed the underpinning of a high trust work environment, a necessity for any organization to succeed. In defining our own success we pride ourselves in being adaptable and resilient as our journey in creating a healthy workplace continues to evolve and mature as we anticipate and adapt to the future environment of work.”

Paul André, President and CEO, Workplace Safety North
