Ontario’s Ministry of Labour has started a summer safety inspection blitz of workplaces with high numbers of new and young (summer student) workers.
Yesterday, the Government of Ontario announced the appointment of two special advisors to conduct a review of the province’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (“WSIB”). The WSIB is an independent agency that administers compensation and no-fault insurance for Ontario workplaces. The review is welcome news to Ontario employers covered by the WSIB and that have long considered the WSIB’s processes to be less than efficient and effective.
