Our safety officers’ job is to enforce compliance with the law, which prevents injuries and save lives. One of the ways they do this is by inspecting worksites.
If a safety officer finds non-compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act or Regulations, they can write orders for an employer to correct the non-compliance.
It is your responsibility as the employer to fix any problems they identify.
After a serious incident involving injury or death, it is the responsibility of an employer to investigate to determine what happened and prevent this incident from happening again. Our safety officers may also elect to perform an investigation into the matter.
