Health and Safety Awareness
Employers must ensure that employees complete a basic occupational health and safety awareness training program. Employers must maintain a record of training completed by workers and supervisors. Ontario Ministry of Labour provides a number of resources and tools to help workplaces comply with the training requirements.
Establishing and Posting : Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee
Employers must post and keep posted the names and work locations of members of the joint health and safety committee or representative in a conspicuous place in the workplace where they are most likely to come to the attention of workers.
A committee is required in each workplace that employs 20 or more workers. Committee membership is equally divided between employee and employer representatives. In workplaces with 20 to 49 workers the committee must have two (2) members for workplaces with 50 or more workers, the committee must have four (4) members.
In workplaces where the number of workers exceeds 5 but is fewer than 20, the workers must select, from among themselves, one person to be a “health and safety representative” who is committed to improving health and safety conditions in the workplace.
