July 1: New OELs to Take Effect


The MOL proposed changes to the OELs and/or listings for substances set out in its 2013 and 2014 consultation documents. As of July 1, 2015, changes based on these proposals will take effect. These changes include the adoption of all OEL proposals set out in the 2013 and 2014 “Review of Occupational Exposure Limits in Ontario” charts, except that the OELs for nitrogen dioxide, manganese and aliphatic hydrocarbon gases will remain unchanged while the MOL considers stakeholder feedback and determines next steps.
