This fall, Ontario is launching a series of province-wide blitzes, after-hours enforcement program and education sessions aimed at construction sites and fall hazards. MOL inspectors will inspect construction sites to check that:
- Employers have safe work practices, policies and programs in place to protect workers from falls hazards
- Workers working on ladders, mobile stands and platforms are properly trained and supervised and use appropriate fall protection systems, PPE and other safety devices
- Openings in floors, work surfaces and walls are protected by guardrails or protective coverings.
