Occupational Health and Safety’s primary mandate is the setting, communicating and enforcing of the occupational health and safety laws and regulations to reduce or eliminate workplace injury or illness.
The Occupational Health and Safety program secures compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act), and assists in securing a healthful and safe working environment. Through the administration and enforcement of the Act and regulations, it encourages employers and workers to cooperatively identify and control health and safety hazards.
The Office of the Worker Adviser and the Office of the Employer Adviser provide advisory and educational services to non-unionized injured workers and smaller employers with less than 100 employees (respectively), and represent them before the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.
Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
