Ministry of Labour Shuts Down 784 Jobs in Ontario

784 jobs have been lost in Ontario by the Ministry of Labour after a safety blitz was conducted following the death of four workers this past Christmas Eve.

The Ministry of Labour conducted a three month safety audit of approximately 2,800 workplaces across Ontario. More then half of these sites were shutdown when inspectors found problems at these sites including lack of properly trained staff and fall hazards.Both employees and employers should be aware of the potential hazards that exist at their workplace and which hazards should be reduced or eliminated through compliance with such legislation as the Occupation Health and Safety Act, including the new amendments introduced by Bill 168: Violence and Harassment in the Workplace.
