Occupational Health & Safety Act

Health and Safety Act
The Ontario Health and Safety Act (OHSA) safeguards workers' three basic rights:

  • the right to know,
  • the right to participate, and
  • the right to refuse unsafe work.

The Act outlines the duties and responsibilities of employers, supervisors, workers, and joint health and safety committees (JHSC), prohibits reprisal by an employer, and provides penalties for violations of the Act.
