Enhancements to the existing Occupational Health and Safety Regulations about hazard assessment make them clearer and easier to understand. They come into effect on September 4, 2021.
The first in a series of hazard assessment campaigns that promote hazard assessment as one of the foundations of workplace safety is underway. This campaign focuses on promoting the hazard assessment resources we offer: the hazard assessment guide and the Safety Talks. A second campaign in the fall/winter will engage employers and workers in thinking about hazard assessment with spot-the-hazards contests.
