What are the health and safety laws protecting me?

Everyone's right to health and safety at work is guaranteed by law, but employers don't always respect the rules. Here is some information about the particulars of health and safety laws.

The Ontario Ministry of Labour is home to the province's labour laws. You can read the Occupational Health and Safety Act yourself, check out the Ministry's Safe at Work strategy, or read through other resources that explain the roles and responsibilities of workers and employers:

Worker’s Health and Safety Centre
Public Services Health and Safety Association
Your Healthy Work Environment
Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)
Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT)

As a healthcare worker you may want to find out more about the rules on violence and harassment in the workplace.
