Occupational Health and Safety

Every employee deserves a safe and healthy workplace. Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety is in place to help protect employees’ health and safety on the job.

Under Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, employers are responsible to protect the health and safety of workers, ensure equipment is maintained in good condition, and to provide information, instruction and supervision to protect worker health and safety.

Additionally, employees have the right to know about hazards on the job as well as the right to refuse work that they believe is dangerous.

If you have suffered an accident on the job, it is important to know all your rights and entitlements. Our employment lawyers and consultants have extensive experience helping employees injured on the job navigate the legal process which can feel daunting and overwhelming, especially while dealing with an injury.
