March 27: First OHS Officers Complete Ticket Training
The first 10 OHS officers recently completed newly designed peace officer training, which gives them the ability to write tickets to employers and workers for the 67 ticketable OHS violations. Tickets range from $100 to $500 and can be issued on the spot. The next set of officers is set to complete training in June 2014. Classes of officers will continue training until all 143 OHS officers are certified to write tickets.
