OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROGRAM - VOTE 1604

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 ensures compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act), and assists in securing a healthy and safe working environment. Through the administration and enforcement of the Act and its 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 survivors, 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.
