Reviewed your compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act?

Did you know that employers, supervisors, and workers can be personally fined under the occupational health and safety act for not taking all reasonable precautions?

The Ministry may initiate a prosecution against any regulated person (including employers, supervisors, and workers) for a contravention of the Act or the regulations, or for failing to comply with an order of an inspector, a director or the minister [subsection 66(1)]. These prosecutions are conducted by the Ministry of the Attorney General lawyers or paralegals on behalf of the Ministry of Labour.

If convicted, a court may impose a fine and/or jail term against an individual defendant. The maximum fine per charge for an individual is $25,000 and/or imprisonment for up to 12 months.

The maximum fine, which can be imposed on a corporation convicted of an offence, is $500,000 per charge [subsections 66(1) and (2)].
