Ontario employers must now display a new workplace poster.
The health and safety poster, entitled “Prevention Starts Here” is available from the provincial Ministry of Labour website, in English, French and 15 other languages.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires employers to post in the workplace a copy of the act and any explanatory material — such as this poster — prepared by the Ministry outlining the rights, responsibilities and duties of workers.
The poster is available online in PDF format in 17 languages. Posters can be printed in black-and-white or in colour and must be displayed “letter” size (8.5 x 11 inches) or larger. Free printed copies (English and French only) are available from ServiceOntario Publications.
