Safety at work is good for business

Progressive business owners know that good health and safety practices will result in big benefits to their business.

A health and safety program is an action plan designed to prevent accidents, and is the joint responsibility of management and workers. Management is legally accountable for non-compliance to health and safety legislation.

All health and safety activities are based on specific individual responsibilities, as set out in provincial and federal legislation which requires a minimum standard met by Ontario companies.
