Health and Safety for small Ontario businesses

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), small business employers have many of the same duties as any other employer, including the following:

  • to do everything they reasonably can to protect their workers in each situation

  • to make sure that every worker and supervisor takes the required training, including basic occupational health and safety awareness training, and keep records of that training
