Training Overview

Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that workplaces be inspected monthly by health and safety representatives and designated members of the joint health and safety committees. Supervisors and employers are encouraged to participate in the workplace inspection process as part of their due diligence in doing everything reasonable to protect workers.

When an inspection is completed following the 5-Step inspection process, hazards are recognized and existing health and safety policies, procedures, and hazard controls are checked to ensure they are working.
