Did You Know?

The  Occupational Health & Safety Act  (OHSA) contains regulations that must be met by all workplaces in Ontario. It includes workers' rights and duties; procedures for dealing with hazards in the workplace; and provides enforcement of the law where compliance has not been met by workplace parties.

Each year, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) conducts  inspection blitzes  in specific sectors across the province of Ontario. Occupational health and safety inspectors carry out these initiatives in order to raise awareness of workplace hazards and to increase workplace compliance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act.

For more information on workplace inspection blitzes and initiatives, including a  schedule of upcoming blitzes  in your area or sector,  click here .
