The Employment Standards Act, 2000, the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997 specify posting requirements. There are health and safety specific materials, which must be posted on your Health and Safety Communications Board. Below is a list of the materials which must be posted there:
  • Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • Health and Safety policy
  • Health and Safety at Work: Prevention Starts Here
  • Workplace Violence and Workplace Harassment Policies
  • In Case of Injury poster (Form 82)
  • Health and Safety Representative, or Joint Health and Safety Committee Members’ name(s)
Along with these mandatory posting, there are other materials which need to be posted in order to comply with due diligence obligations under the OHSA.
