All workers have the right to return home each day safe and sound. Preventing work-related illness and injury is the most important job at any workplace. Employers, Supervisors, and workers have the duty and responsibility to work safely and identify hazards that could cause critical and fatal injuries. As of May 1, 2015,  Ministry of Labour inspectors will check that employers are complying with Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act. This will include checking that new and young workers:
  • Are properly informed, instructed and supervised on the job
  • Meet the minimum age requirement
  • Follow required safety measures and procedures to prevent injuries
Inspectors will focus on industrial sector workplaces like tourism, hospitality and recreation where many new and young workers are employed. Protecting young people on the job is part of the Ontario government’s continued commitment to preventing workplace injuries. Did you Know !!
  • Between 2009 and 2013, 30 young workers aged 15 to 24 died in work-related incidents and more than 30,000 received injuries resulting in lost time at work.
  • Many young workers who received lost-time injuries were employed as labourers in processing, manufacturing and utilities as well as food counter attendants and kitchen helpers.

“We need to work together to avoid these incidents from occurring.

Protecting our workers is the responsibility of each employer & supervisor”.
