Beginning October 1, 2012, Ontario employers must display a new workplace poster “Health & Safety at Work: Prevention Starts Here”. It is available from the 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 Service Ontario Here is a link to the poster download page: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/pubs/poster_prevention.php
Thanks to John Norris, executive director, HARA/CIIA for bringing this to our attention.
