Changes in Ontario Health and Safety Law
This past summer, the Ontario government announced that it would significantly step up its enforcement of health and safety laws in Ontario workplaces. The government has begun hiring 200+ new staff, including over 100 new health and safety inspectors. This represents an approximately 40 per cent increase in the number of health and safety inspectors throughout the province.
In response to these changes, McCarthy Tétrault has developed an interactive Webinar series for employers, who will face increasing scrutiny of their health and safety policies, standards and procedures, possibly leading to inspectors’ compliance orders and charges.
All six parts of the series are now available in streaming on-demand video.
