July 6: Protect Outdoor Workers from Ticks


The MOL reminded employers that they have a duty to protect workers who work outside from getting bitten by ticks and exposed to the risk of getting Lyme disease. Occupations at risk include workers in park and wildlife management, grounds keepers, loggers, construction workers, farmers, fishers, camp counsellors, landscapers, biologists, veterinarians, silviculture workers and tree planters.
