Health & Safety Smart Planner: Economic Evaluation Software

The Health & Safety Smart Planner is a software tool designed to calculate the costs and benefits of workplace health and safety initiatives. It can be used by anyone involved in considering or undertaking a health and safety initiative.

The Smart Planner has three sections.

Do Your Own Analysis enables you to calculate the benefits and costs of safety initiatives in your workplace.
Incident Cost Calculator records the costs of health and safety incidents.
About H&S Smart Planning provides detailed help explaining how to use the software, with examples of how it could be used.

The H&S Smart Planner offers the following features:

  • A step-by-step approach
  • Pre-planning information to help you get organized before you begin
  • Pop-up buttons that explain each field as you enter your data
  • A database to store and update your company’s information
  • A summary sheet for planning and decision-making
  • The ability to save information on your desktop, and customize the file with your company name.

For other jurisdictions: Although the H&S Smart Planner was designed for use by workplaces in Ontario and Manitoba, workplaces in other jurisdictions may find it useful, too. The Ontario H&S Smart Planner has a workers' compensation insurance step for workplaces in the New Experimental Experience Rating (NEER) or Merit-Adjusted Premium (MAP) programs run by the province's Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). Workplaces outside of those programs can use the software by skipping that step.

Software development for Ontario was supported by funding from Ontario’s WSIB Research Advisory Council. Software and instructional video development for Manitoba was supported by a grant from the Workplace Research and Innovation Program of the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba.
