TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 27, 2015) - Apollo Health and Beauty Care has successfully completed its fifth year in the Workplace Safety and Prevention Services Safety Group Program. This voluntary program is a performance-based rebate program developed by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and encourages Ontario employers to develop and continuously improve their occupational health and safety systems and overall health and safety performance.

Apollo has consciously pledged to create and maintain a vigorous safety culture with commitment and participation at all levels of the organization. 

"Not only is it good business sense to place safety as a top priority in the workplace, but it demonstrates commitment to our valued employees and accountability at all levels of the organization to do things the right way," says Charles Wachsberg, President and Owner of Apollo Health and Beauty Care who takes a personal interest in selecting and monitoring the progress of Safety Group Elements each year.

Apollo Chairman Richard Wachsberg acknowledges he "looks forward to reviewing our annual health and safety objectives and celebrating our achievements and successes with our staff." With Apollo entering the SGAP program for employers in their sixth year of participation, Richard Wachsberg notes that "this new auditing and reporting phase will bring us to the next level of health and safety excellence."
