Get a better understanding about the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), the OHS Regulations, and the concept of The Internal Responsibility System.
The OHSA sets out duties for all workplace parties and rights for workers. It establishes procedures for dealing with workplace hazards and provides details for enforcement of the law where compliance has not been achieved voluntarily.
HEALTH & SAFETY NEWS
The National Day of Mourning, held annually in Canada on April 28, is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job or due to a work-related tragedy.
Statistics and beyond
The most recent statistics from the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) tell us that in 2015, 852 workplace deaths were recorded in Canada. Among those dead were four young workers aged fifteen to nineteen years; and another eleven workers aged twenty to twenty-four years.
Add to these fatalities the 232,629 claims accepted for lost time due to a work-related injury or disease, including 8,155 from young workers aged fifteen to nineteen, and the fact that these statistics only include what is reported and accepted by the compensation boards, and it is safe to say that the total number of workers impacted is even higher.
What these numbers don't show is just how many people are directly affected by these workplace tragedies. Each worker death impacts the loved ones, families, friends and coworkers they leave behind, changing all of their lives forever.
Provincial Health and Safety Compliance Initiatives in 2020-21, Source: The Ontario Ministry of Labour
Inspections will take place at industrial workplaces from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021.
Health and safety inspection initiatives are part of the province’s Safe At Work Ontario compliance strategy.
These initiatives are announced to sectors in advance. However, individual workplaces are not identified in advance.
Results from provincial initiatives are posted on the ministry’s website. The initiatives are intended to raise awareness of workplace hazards and promote compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and its regulations.
Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development inspectors are responsible for enforcing the OHSA and its regulations at workplaces across the province. As part of the Safe At Work Ontario strategy, the ministry decides on the focus of initiatives using a risk-based process. This process takes into account:
injury, illness and fatality rates
the nature of the work (for example, hazards that come with the job)
the vulnerability of the workers
advice from stakeholders and the field
The focuses can be on specific sectors, hazards, issues or topics.
Inspectors are not limited to inspecting only the topics identified in this plan; they can apply the OHSA and its regulations to the situation they find at each workplace they inspect.
Inspectors’ findings may influence how often individual workplaces will be inspected in the future. Inspectors may also refer employers to health and safety associations for assistance and training.
