The Ontario Ministry of Labour has released its "system priorities" for 2012-13.
In its " Introduction to Safe At Work Ontario Sector Plans, 2012-2013", the Ministry of Labour states:
"This year, in consultation with our system partners,
-slips, trips and falls
-machinery-related incidents, and
-motor vehicle incidents
were identified as the four key areas of focused planning.
Priority will also be focused on vulnerable workers and small business."
Employers should be aware that Ministry of Labour inspectors will be paying particular attention to these issues in the next year.
