Enhancements to Occupational Health & Safety Regulations

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.
