Health and Safety is a fundamental aspect to every business that impacts both employers and workers. One of the keys to ensuring everyone is safe, and that workers know their rights, is through The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). The OHSA is legislation that applies to all workplaces and is enforced by the Ministry of labour. The OHSA establishes procedures for dealing with workplace hazards and provides enforcement of the law where compliance has not been achieved voluntarily by workplace parties.
