June 22: Safety Initiative Targets Residential Roofing


Ontario is targeting residential roofing at existing homes to keep workers safe on the job and homeowners informed of the risks of hiring contractors who operate “under the table” in cash deals. The initiative includes after hours and weekend visits by MOL inspectors, who’ll hand out information sheets to homeowners. The residential roofing initiative is part of a larger initiative that includes raising workplace awareness of new mandatory working at heights training requirements.
