Description

Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that workplaces be inspected monthly by health and safety representatives and designated members of the joint health and safety committees. Supervisors and employers are encouraged to participate in the workplace inspection process as part of their due diligence in doing everything reasonable to protect workers.

Workplace inspections are also a core activity within a functioning health and safety program. When properly carried out, workplace inspections can help you proactively identify and address hazards before they contribute to costly incidents. This course helps you to meet your legal requirements and improve your ability to effectively inspect your workplace.
