Ontario will help protect workers on the job by launching more than 20 targeted blitzes at workplaces across the province over the next year.

These enforcement blitzes will focus on violations of Ontario’s employment standards and occupational health and safety laws. As part of the blitzes, a wide range of workplaces will be visited, including food services, retail stores, construction sites and mines. In particular, sectors with vulnerable workers and a history of violations will be targeted.

Occupational health and safety inspectors will check for occupational health and safety violations involving such issues as falls, electrical hazards and chemical handling. The goal is to help prevent workplace injuries and deaths.
