The Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development recently released the Prevention Works – Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety System in Action: 5-Year Strategy. This strategy outlines the updates that the MLTSD wants to make to update and refine Ontario’s H&S compliance strategies.
Included in this update/redevelopment are proposed changes to standardize H&S training across provinces, making it easier for workers to move around and removing the requirement to recertify.
There is also a focus on Small Businesses, defined in this report as those with fewer than 50 employees. This focus includes education to assist employers in understanding how H&S compliance is beneficial to the organization, as well as developing ways to assist with the overwhelming costs associated with H&S compliance that most smaller companies can’t afford.
