What we aim to do

Each year we schedule inspection initiatives in specific sectors to protect workers' rights under both the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Employment Standards Act, and enhance employers' awareness of their responsibilities.

We announce the focus of the initiatives ahead of time. However, individual workplaces are not identified in advance. The next round takes place April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019 – the fiscal year.

View the 2018-19 schedules for:

Health and safety in the workplace

Occupational health and safety inspectors carry out their initiatives to:

  • raise awareness of hazards
  • increase compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations

Employment standards in the workplace

Initiatives also take place to check that employers across the province are upholding employment standards. For example, employment standards officers inspect workplaces regarding:

  • minimum wage
  • hours of work
  • overtime pay
  • public holidays
  • paid vacation

They focus on sectors where:

  • there’s a history of violations
  • vulnerable workers are employed such as
    • new and young workers
    • temporary foreign workers
    • workers in non-standard or precarious work
  • the number of people working is on the rise
