The Government of Ontario recently released their provincial workplace health and safety inspection initiatives for 2019-2020.

Each year the MOL schedules inspection initiatives in specific sectors to protect workers’ rights under both the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Employment Standards Act with the goal of enhancing employers’ awareness of their responsibilities.

The government announces the focus of the initiatives ahead of time, but individual workplaces are not contacted or notified in advance of inspections.

Please take a look at the full Ontario MOL Inspection Initiative Release for more information.
