Health and Safety

Workplace Responsibilities

Everyone in the workplace, from you as an employer to your newest worker, has different but important duties to keep the workplace safe.

The Health and Safety Poster is a great summary of everyone’s roles around safety. It’s available in 19 languages. The law says you must have it posted in your workplace in English and the language most of your workers speak.

For more knowledge about safety on the job, your workers can complete the Worker Health and Safety Awareness in 4 Steps workbook. This training program teaches them what they need to know about health and safety rights and responsibilities at work.

Supervisors can complete their own workbook, Supervisor Health and Safety Awareness in 5 Steps, to learn what they need to know as supervisors.

Both workbooks are free to download in nine languages. You can also order printed copies from Service Ontario.

To learn more about keeping your workplace healthy and safe, you can also visit the Ministry of Labour’s Occupational Health and Safety web page. 

Small businesses represent 95% of all employers in Ontario, and they employ 28% of Ontario’s workers. Business owners know that a commitment to health, safety and fairness makes good business sense.
