General Information

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act) gives Safety Officers the authority to issue orders and decisions, to ensure health and safety in respect of any employment upon or in connection with the operation of any work, undertaking or business. 

Orders and decisions are made to ensure compliance with the Act and Regulations. The ultimate goal is to prevent work-related accidents and disabilities.  

In an order, the Safety Officer describes the violation, cites the contravention under the Act or Regulations, and provides a direct order to correct or control the condition, procedure or processes that violates the Act or Regulations.
