Getting Started

Health & safety doesn't have to be complicated. Visit our Q&A section to learn about your legal requirements, hazards and risks, program development and much more.

Investing in Safety

Attention to health & safety isn't just about obeying the law – it makes good business sense. Invest in safety by increasing employee engagement and assessing practices to identify areas of growth.

Legal Compliance

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) sets out minimum health & safety standards for Ontario workplaces. As a business owner you're required to be aware of your OHSA responsibilities and duties. Keep up-to-date on legislative changes with our Legislation Tracker.
