Aug. 19, 2016 – The Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) is seeking 38 inspectors to help enforce Ontario’s occupational health and safety laws at industrial and construction sector workplaces across the province, said a senior official.

“We’re looking for self-motivated individuals with the required knowledge and skills who can help promote compliance with our laws,” said Peter Augruso, assistant deputy minister of Operations Division. “They will play important roles on our enforcement team in protecting workers.”

The positions include:
• Twenty-seven industrial inspectors for North York, Scarborough, Mississauga, Newmarket, Hamilton, Waterloo, London, St. Catharines, Windsor, Sudbury and Thunder Bay
• Four bilingual industrial inspectors for North York, Mississauga, Thunder Bay and Ottawa
• Six construction inspectors for North York
• One bilingual construction inspector for North York

Inspector applicants must have a working knowledge of Ontario’s occupational health and safety legislation and regulations, with work experience in a range of settings, with various techniques, equipment, hazards and controls. Successful candidates will undergo up to eight months of training that includes both classroom and field study. They will enforce, interpret and apply legislation, conduct inspections and investigations, and provide testimony in court.

“We hope to have the new staff on board by February 2017 and ready to work in the field by next fall,” said Augruso.
