Ministry of Labor and OSHA Regulations
– Comply and Save!
In today’s world, big business is global business -
employing millions of people who all function in a workplace.
Whether doing business in Canada, Ireland, Great Britain,
or the U.S., workplace safety is an issue that comes with
stringent guidelines and regulations.
Employers throughout North America and the United Kingdom
are accountable to government regulation and enforcement;
such as the Ministry of Labor in Ontario, Canada, or OSHA
(Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in the U.S.
Non-compliance or violation of these health and safety regulations
can result in huge fines and loss of revenue. With government
regulations in place as early as 1974, employers have promoted
workplace safety with occupational health and safety or injury
prevention training programs for employees.
Costs of implementing and administrating these programs,
along with the cost of fines and penalties paid by employers
who fail to meet occupational health and safety guidelines,
amount to billions of dollars each year. Large corporate employers
have been especially subject to these costs and dedicate entire
departments for the sole purpose of workplace safety and OSHA
In addition to compliance with occupational health and safety
regulations, employers pay premiums to their respective government
agency; the WSIB or Ministry of Labor in Ontario, Canada or
state government agencies in the U.S. for employee workman’s
compensation coverage. These government-administered insurance
programs provide benefits for employees who are injured while
on the job or at the workplace.
