Be Prepared, Be Safe! MOL Safe At Work Ontario; Slips, trips and falls initiative.

MOL Safe at Work Ontario; Slips, trips and falls initiative: March 18th - July 12th 2019

From the Ministry, March 2019.

The ministry is holding an initiative which focuses on slips, trips and falls in the workplace.

Phase 1 of the initiative is a compliance support and awareness campaign, which runs the length of the initiative (March 18–July 12, 2019), and will be supported by the Ministry's health and safety association (HSA) partners. Each HSA is hosting a free webinar to help employers prepare for an inspection.  More information and a schedule can be found at: Slips, trips and falls initiative 2019. 

Phase 2 of the initiative is a focused inspections campaign, which runs from April 15–July 12, 2019. To help prevent same level falls, inspectors will focus on slips, trips and fall hazards in all sectors. In workplaces where fall protection is required to prevent falls from heights, inspectors will check that adequate fall protection systems such as a travel restraint, fall restricting system, fall arrest system, safety net or guardrails are being used.

See the Resources section for information to assist workplaces in preparing for the initiative and complying with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations.
