The Ministry of Labour is consulting on a proposal to amend the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation (O. Reg. 297/13) under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The amendments, if approved, would require employers to ensure that workers who perform work to which the Construction Projects Regulation (O. Reg. 213/91) applies complete a construction hazard awareness training program.

For more information on the proposals please visit the Government of Ontario’s Regulatory Registry.
