Ontario MOL’s March 2012 Construction Blitz: Formwork, Masonry, Siding, Built-up Roofing

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has announced the details of its March 2012 safety blitz on construction sites.

The MOL states that:

“Beginning March 1, inspectors from the Ministry of Labour will visit construction projects employing workers in high-rise formwork, low-rise formwork and masonry, siding and built-up roofing work. The inspections will help ensure that:

-work areas are safe from hazards that cause dangerous slips, trips or falls
-workers are using fall protection systems properly and equipment such as ladders, platforms and scaffolds.”
