The recommendations support PSHSA’s work and the work of the other health and safety associations. We welcome the release of the panel’s report, and are pleased that the announcement has raised public awareness about the need to enhance health and safety in Ontario’s workplaces. We look forward to working with the Ministry and our system partners on strengthening Ontario’s health and safety system to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses. We are committed to keeping you informed about developments as we look forward to being part of this new step forward for Ontario’s workers and employers.
