Ontario is launching a four-month safety blitz to help protect new and young workers who are often vulnerable to hazards on the job.

Beginning May 1, health and safety inspectors will ensure employers are complying with regulations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and that young workers are:
• Instructed, trained and supervised on jobs;
• Using proper safety measures, equipment and procedures to prevent injuries; and
• Meeting minimum age requirements for the work they are doing.

Inspectors will focus on workplaces where many new and young workers are employed, including restaurants, landscaping sites, arenas, mills, nursing homes, low-rise construction projects and farming operations.
