Ministry of Labour Inspection Blitzes and Initiatives

 

The Ministry of Labour has released the 2015/16 inspection blitzes and inspections schedule, which includes a regional initiative for “Field to Bottle Winery”.

The Ministry is coordinating the proactive enforcement blitz and initiative schedules for the Occupational Health and Safety Program and the Employment Standards Program. Coordinating the schedules highlights the importance the ministry places 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. We will be conducting "Provincial Blitzes" which are province-wide, sector-specific enforcement initiatives, as well as Regional "Initiatives" which are smaller-scale enforcement initiatives.
