The Lions Library | Ontario Workplace Health and Safety Protocols

The Lions Library | Ontario Workplace Health and Safety Protocols

For this month’s Lions Library, let’s talk about workplace health and safety protocols in Ontario! The goal of Lions Library is to provide you with short-form, easy to understand, explanations of workplace health and safety topics as well as act as a database for where to learn more. In today’s blog, we’ll be sharing information on Ontario’s provincial workplace health and safety programs and where to find the best information to keep yourself and your employees safe working within the province of Ontario.

We will be posting a new Lions Library each month this year focusing on all of the Canadian provinces! Tune in to our blog, or social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Linkedin) so you’ll be sure to catch when we publish your province’s! 

What are workplace health and safety guidelines?

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety (CCOHS) states, “A health and safety program is a definite plan of action designed to prevent accidents and occupational diseases.”

In most Canadian jurisdictions, some sort of a health and safety program is required under the occupational health and safety legislation. Because every organization is different, a specific health and safety program must be developed for each organization and cannot necessarily be expected to meet the needs of another.

Workplace Health and Safety in Ontario 

Ontario workplace health and safety is regulated by The Occupational Health & Safety Act which sets out the rights and duties of everyone in the workplace, as well as the procedures for dealing with workplace hazards and for enforcement.

Other contributing legislation includes the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA), Part II of which deals with the prevention of occupational injury and disease and the Human Rights Code, which often has to be considered in dealing with OHS issues. Both OHSA and WSIA are available along with all of Ontario’s other Acts and regulations at the e-Laws website.

The Occupational Health & Safety Act came into force first in 1979 and with changes that were made in 1990 and subsequent years it has evolved into what it is today. These changes strengthened the requirements for occupational health and safety in Ontario workplaces and reinforced the internal responsibility system (IRS), in particular, the joint health and safety committees.

It’s important for employers to note that The Occupational Health & Safety Act makes it clear that employers have the greatest responsibilities. However, everyone has a role to play to ensure that health and safety requirements are met in the workplace. The respective roles and responsibilities for all workplace parties are detailed in The Occupational Health & Safety Act.

For Employees

As a worker in Ontario, you have three basic rights related to health and safety.

  • The right to know and to be trained in safe work practices in all aspects of your job.
  • The right to participate in health and safety matters either directly or through a worksite health and safety committee or representative.
  • The right to refuse work if you have reasonable cause to believe that the work process, equipment or environment poses an undue risk of injury to you or another person

If you’re a supervisor you have the responsibility to:

  • Provide a safe workplace and assign safe work taking all reasonable precautions to protect your coworkers from illness and/or injury
  • Inform your coworkers about job hazards and training them to do their jobs safely
  • Provide supervision to ensure that coworkers work safely and use equipment and protective devices properly where required

Supervisors who fail to comply with these and other Ontario’s Occupational Health & Safety Act regulations can result in individual fines up to $25,000.

Here are some resources that will help you educate yourself around Ontario OH&S:

For Employers 

Ontario’s Occupational Health & Safety Act gives employers responsibility to:

  • Keep a safe and well-maintained workplace, taking all reasonable precautions to protect workers from illness and/or injury
  • Provide information about the hazards in the workplace including proper safety equipment, training, and competent supervision
  • Post the WSIB’s “In Case of Injury at Work” poster and follow proper procedures in case of injury
  • Post the Occupational Health & Safety Act in your workplace
  • Have worker representation for health and safety. If you workplace has 20 or more employees or you deal with a designated substance you must have a joint health and safety committee (JHSC). Construction projects that last more than 3 months with 20 or more workers must also have a JHSC. Workplaces with more than 5 employees, but less than 20 employees are required to have a health and safety representative

Failure to comply with these and other Ontario’s Occupational Health & Safety Act regulations can result in individual fines up to $25,000 and/or up to a year in prison. Corporations who fail to comply with these regulations can be fined up to $500,000. Employers are also subject to penalties for failing to report to the WSIB-within 3 days of learning of a workplace injury or illness.

Occupational health and safety compliance By Sector

Construction

The Construction Health and Safety Program enforces Ontario’s workplace safety laws in the construction sector. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, “construction” includes, erection, alteration, repair, dismantling, demolition, structural maintenance, painting, land clearing, earthmoving, grading, excavating, trenching, digging, boring, drilling, blasting or concreting, the installation of any machinery or plant & any work or undertaking in connection with a project, excluding any work or undertaking underground in a mine.

Health care

The Health Care Health and Safety Program enforces Ontario’s workplace safety laws in the health care sector. This includes long-term care homes, retirement homes, hospitals, nursing services, supported group living residences, treatment clinics and specialized services, professional offices and agencies, including medical laboratories. Most of these workplaces are also governed by Ontario Regulation 67/93 – Health Care and Residential Facilities.

Industrial sector

The Industrial Health and Safety Program enforces health and safety laws in industrial workplaces. This program is a large and diverse program that enforces Ontario’s workplace health and safety laws in 29 different sectors with includes the most provincially regulated workplaces in Ontario including education, government services and retail.

Mining sector

The Mining Health and Safety Program enforces Ontario’s workplace safety laws in the mining sector. Ontario’s mining sector can vary based on location, setting or activity including large and small firms, unionized and non-unionized workplaces, underground and surface operations, processing plants, including mills, smelters and refineries, sand and gravel operations, mineral exploration sites and oil and gas extraction facilities.

Specialized Professional Services and Radiation Protection Services

The Specialized Professional Services Unit provides technical support and expertise to ministry staff in ergonomics, occupational hygiene, engineering and emergency management. This unit also continues in the development of standards and legislation of health and safety guidelines.

The best way to do something safely is to do it correctly, and that comes with proper training and education! Hercules SLR recognizes that and through the Hercules Training Academy, offers an extensive suite of high-quality safety training and certification courses.

Brand new classrooms and specialized training equipment enable us to provide an even higher quality of service than ever before when it comes to safety training.

Women In Fishing | Kathleen Clements

Women In Fishing | Kathleen Clements

This month we have an extra special Women in Fishing profile all about Kathleen Clements. Does that last name sound familiar to you? If you’ve been keeping up with our monthly posts over on Facebook, you may have noticed that Kathleen Clements is the THIRD Clements lady we have interviewed for this project. First, we started with Vanessa Clements, then her mom, Cindy Clements, and now we’re talking to Cindy’s mom Kathleen – that’s right, three generations of amazing women working in the Atlantic Canadian fishing industry!

Kathleen Clements in her own words, “worked hard and played hard” in her time in the fishing industry. She fished with many people over the years and built lifelong memories on the boat. She experienced many ups and many downs but her greatest ‘up’ was providing for her children while imparting the experiences to be able to go on and start their own fishing business.

Spartan Marine was lucky enough to speak with Kathleen and ask her some questions about her experience in the fishing industry – this is what she shared with us…

How long have you been in the fishing industry?

I started fishing on the ocean with my husband in 1983, but helped him with the gear, and the boat, since 1960. I would repair traps and paint the boat, but mostly I knitted heads for lobster traps. I fished for a total of 20 years, in the boat.

How did you get started in the fishing industry?

My father fished, so it was nothing new to me when I married Cecil. So I guess you could say that I started when we got married in 1960.

What’s your favourite part about working in the fishing industry?

I loved being outdoors, especially on the water – every day it was a surprise to see some of the different kinds of fish that would get caught in the nets or traps. We never knew what we would see next!

Have you experienced any roadblocks in the industry because you’re a woman? If so, how did you overcome those struggles?

People said that I was just in the boat to “collect stamps” however, I went to work every day and I did my part in the boat every day. It was looked at as odd or different, but I overcame it by proving them all wrong.

Can you share your greatest achievement or fondest memory since working in the fishing industry?

My husband and I worked very very hard to provide for our 6 children. We have 3 boys and 3 girls. One of our greatest achievement was us being able to give them the experience to start their own fishing business.

What would you tell a young woman wanting to get into the fishing industry? Do you have any advice?

It has to be something that u love, it’s a tough job, I’m not gonna sugar coat it and say it’s easy because it’s not. Most people think it’s a fun trip in the boat, however, you have to endure some pretty nasty weather, break downs, lost gear, damaged gear etc… You have to be extremely careful while fishing. It’s no joke out there. But don’t get me wrong, I loved my job and there were a lot of great days in the boat. Fishing doesn’t stop when the season is over, that just meant we worked during our months off to repair gear and do the necessary things to get ready for the next fishing season.


A big thank you goes out to Kathleen for sharing her story with Spartan Marine, and to her daughter Lynsey who helped capture her experiences. It was a pleasure getting to learn about and share a bit of your story as a woman in the fishing industry, and the matriarch of what would become three generations of amazing fisher-women!

A Family Day Craft for Future Riggers

Family Day Crafts for Future Riggers

With Family Day/Heritage Day coming up next week we wanted to feature a fun craft perfect for family time with our next generation of Hercules SLR Rigging Technicians! Turn your old paper towel and toilet paper rolls into your very own crane and trucks to drive around your construction site.

We challenge you to try this craft with your family this upcoming holiday weekend (or anytime!) and send us a photo of the results by email, on Instagram or on Facebook. We trust your crane will be totally up to inspection!

Recycled Crane Construction Site

Created by Marie-Laure Pham at Howwonderful.co 

Materials:

  • Recycled paper rolls large and small
  • Craft paper colored rolls
  • Colored construction paper
  • Colored tape
  • Tape, glue, paper cutter
  • Compass and scissors

Instructions:

Step 1: Roll and glue your large paper towel roll with colored construction paper. Make crosses over the tube with colored tape. (Tip! Don’t have colored tap? Color your own masking tape for extra customization)

Step 2: Make the top of your crane by drawing and cutting a triangle out of colored construction paper.

Step 3: Make the “hook” by cutting a long rectangle (around 10″ by 1″) and rolling it to make it round and gluing it. Take a piece of embroidery string and make a knot around your loop.

Step 4: Take your finished paper towel roll from step one and make a cut on top across both sides with scissors. Now insert the top of your crane into the cut slot. Glue the end of your string attached to your hook to the end of the crane top.

Step 5: Make the conductor box by cutting a rectangle out of your construction paper. Roll it to make it round and glue it. Add a rectangle, either out of paper or thin cardboard (like a cereal box); glue it to your circle. Draw 2 circles and glue on top and bottom of your shape. Add the box to your crane.

Step 6: Make a truck by taking one small colored craft roll. Make a hole on top. Make similar paper circle shapes as in the crane elements and attach to a piece of embroidery string and then, link the roll to the circle by gluing them together. Roll leftover pieces of paper and insert inside your construction truck circles. Repeat for as many trucks as you want your construction site to have!
