The Ontario Ministry of Labour continues to proactively schedule and enforce blitzes for the Occupational Health and Safety Program and the Employment Standards Program.
The ministry is committed to protecting workers’ rights under both the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA), while raising awareness and highlighting the responsibilities of employers.
Occupational health and safety inspectors will focus blitzes on sector-specific hazards. Employment standards officers will focus on sectors where there is a history of employment standards violations and where vulnerable workers are employed.
