MOL Bulletin: Advancing Ontario’s Workplace Health and Safety Strategy
December 19, 2013
HAVE YOUR SAY ABOUT WORKPLACE HEALTH AND SAFETY IN ONTARIO
The Ministry of Labour has launched consultations on the development of a province-wide integrated occupational health and safety strategy, the first of its kind for Ontario.
This strategy will provide a clear vision to guide Ontario’s occupational health and safety system, and workplaces. It will also help shape operational plans and programs for the ministry and its partners in the years ahead.
The strategy will focus on issues such as:
addressing the needs of vulnerable workers
supporting small businesses
effective support for workplace parties
The consultations will cover the entire range of occupational health and safety, from prevention to compliance and enforcement. The feedback received will help in the development of the strategy. Ultimately, the final strategy document will guide the planning, development, delivery, and evaluation of occupational health and safety programs and services in Ontario.
