As in any workplace, it is essential to protect and promote the health and safety of employees. In order to do this, you need to be aware of the specific risks and hazards that are particular to your sector or field, as well as how to identify, control and report them. Hazards may include latex allergies, requirements for needle disposal, WHMIS, violence and bullying, radiation safety, musculoskeletal disorders, and slips, trips and falls.
As outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Ontario workplaces are subject to a number of requirements in order to meet their legal obligations. To assist with compliance, you will find additional health and safety resources listed below.
