Description:

The paper relates that the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) of Ontario can be said to have two purposes, a superficial purpose and a deep purpose. The paper explains that the superficial purpose of WSIB is to provide workers in Ontario with safety training and worker's compensation. However, the paper discusses how as Haddow and Klassen (108) argue, the deep purpose of WSIB is to "decrease [historical] OHS administrative costs by 30%." The paper relates that WSIB does so, according to Mogensen (158), by siding with business over the public interest in the realm of workplace safety: "It took aim at dismembering a number of UHS educational and regulatory bodies that the business community in the late 1980s had targeted as both too costly and an encroaching too far into the area of management rights.""
