11-07-2011 - Bill 168 Compliance

Q: Are we compliant with Bill 168?

A: If your workplace is in Ontario and has five or more workers, you'll need to comply with Bill 168, the amendment to the provincial Occupational Health and Safety Act that protects workers from violence and harassment in the workplace. You'll need to show that you have policies, programs and training initiatives in place to recognize, assess and control violence and harassment, just like you would with any other health and safety hazard. If you can do that, you're compliant with Bill 168. If not, you may have some work ahead of you.
