The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development’s proactive inspection blitzes and initiatives on sector-specific hazards are designed to raise awareness and increase compliance with health and safety legislation.

Each year, the ministry coordinates the proactive enforcement blitz and initiative schedules for the Occupational Health and Safety Program and the Employment Standards Program. The ministry places importance on protecting workers’ rights under both the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the Employment Standards Act (ESA), and enhancing employers’ awareness of their responsibilities.

  • improve the health and safety culture of workplaces
  • reduce workplace injuries and illness
  • lessen the burden on the health care system
  • avoid costs for employers and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board
  • provide a level playing field for compliant companies
