The Ministry of Labour runs continuous workplace blitzes and initiatives to constantly enforce the Occupational Health & Safety Act. Check out the upcoming blitz dates and the blitz focus.

They will also be continuing their inspections on Group Homes and their usual sectors of construction, industrial, healthcare, mining plus a cross sector focus.

“Group homes” are primarily engaged in providing residential care for people who require care or support, including people with developmental disabilities, mental health disabilities or substance abuse problems. They include intensive supported residences, supported group living residences and other facilities that provide support to clients and residents in residential settings.

Be sure to be open and honest with the inspectors and you'll find that they will be open to helping you succeed in becoming compliant with the laws and regulations. Download a copy of 'Dealing with Safety Inspectors' and use it as a resource for your company.
