Certified Health and Safety Consultants

Did you know that every employer in Ontario has a duty and responsibility under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to provide a Healthy & Safety working environment for all its workers. When employers choose to not adhere to the OHSA and then use the reactive approach to health and safety, this is a major contributor to workplace accidents and incidents. The Occupation Health and Safety Act (OHSA), Construction Regulation 213/91, Industrial Regulation 851, WHMIS Regulation 860, to name a few have set out the rules and guidelines to promoting a health and safe working environment in Ontario. The main purpose of the Occupational Health and Safety Act ( OHSA ) is to protect workers from health and safety hazards on the job. It sets out duties for all workplace parties and gives rights for workers. It establishes procedures for dealing with workplace hazards and provides for enforcement of the law where compliance has not been achieved voluntarily. Fundamental to the successful working of OHSA is the workplace Internal responsibility system (IRS).
