Younger Workers Using a Forklift

Between July 18 and Sept. 2, 2016, MOL inspectors conducted an enforcement blitz in the industrial sector focusing on new and young workers. The inspectors conducted 1,144 visits to 905 workplaces and issued 3,113 orders, including 44 stop work orders. The three most frequently issued OHS orders involved employers’ failure to:

  • Post a copy of the OHS Act in the workplace
  • Maintain equipment in good condition
  • Take reasonable precautions to protect workers’ health and safety.
