LO’s Safety Groups Program is designed to promote health and safety compliance in the workplace. Member firms enjoy an improved safety culture and programs, along with financial benefits through WSIB rebates. Recently members gathered at the LO office in Milton, where a WSIB representative presented the members with a rebate cheque for $61,752.23. The number was determined from 2007 figures. Two LO firms, Landscapes By Lucin and Jan Gelderman Landscaping, were randomly audited by WSIB. In that audit, both companies received a 100 per cent performance grade.

In photo, members are shown at the cheque presentation at the Milton offices. From left, holding the cheque are Shelley Wall of WSIB, John Buikema of Jan Gelderman Landscaping and Arvil Luks of Landscapes By Lucin. Standing in back, from left, are a few members of the Safety Group: Gerald Dehaan, Gwen Ferris, Gerald Boot, Brandy Muis, Rob Kenney, Alisha McGregor, Pat Elo and Jenny Wu.
