Proposal to Modernize Regulatory Requirements for Part VII - Notices under the Occupational Health and Safety Act
Bill or Act:
Occupational Health and Safety Act
Summary of Proposal:
All workplaces covered by the OHSA are required to provide notice and reports to the MLTSD and/or other specified workplace parties (such as the Joint Health and Safety Committee) of any fatalities, critical injuries, occupational illnesses and other prescribed incidents or occurrences at the workplace (Part VII - Notices: Sections 51 to 53.1, OHSA).
To assist employers in meeting their obligations under Part VII - Notices of the OHSA, the MLTSD is proposing to streamline the prescribed written reporting requirements into a single regulation that would apply to all workplaces covered under the OHSA.
