MLTSD Conducting Construction Inspection COVID-19 Blitz

Dear IHSA Stakeholder,

The Ontario government has just announced that they will begin targeted provincewide inspections of construction sites this Friday, dispatching 200 workplace inspectors, supported by provincial offenses offers, to visit 1,300 construction sites to enforce safety requirements. The inspection campaign will focus on enforcing the COVID-19 safety requirements and identifying those who are not following the rules. Violations may result in fines of up to $750 for individuals and $1,000 for businesses. See News Release

Constructors and/or employers can access key resources from IHSA to help in the development of the COVID-19 workplace safety plan and workplace specific controls.
