Looking for a Little Summer Spending Cash, Not a Workers Comp Claim

Ontario recently launched a four-month blitz to ensure students are safe and do not get injured while working on their summer jobs.

Beginning this spring, an enforcement blitz is targeting workplaces where new and young workers are employed. Health and safety inspectors from the Ministry of Labor will check that employers comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act.[WCx]
The blitz will ensure young workers:
  • Are protected by required safety measures, equipment and procedures to prevent injuries
  • Are properly instructed, trained and supervised on jobs
  • Meet minimum age requirements.
The inspectors will shut down unsafe work sites when necessary and employers could face fines through the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Protecting young people on the job is part of the McGuinty government’s continued commitment to prevent workplace injuries through its Safe at Work Ontario strategy.
