It is an exhilarating time at Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) and the company is looking for two inspirational and collaborative individuals to join its board of directors.

WSPS is a dynamic, not-for-profit organization and a key player in Ontario’s occupational health and safety system. Serving 167,000 member organizations and 4.1 million employees in the province’s manufacturing, agriculture and service sectors, it helps businesses prosper through the establishment of healthy work environments. Uniting community and business leaders to create positive change, WSPS protects potential through its team of safety experts, focus on innovation in emerging areas and commitment to fostering organizational cultures of health and safety.
