Health and Safety Tools

  • Content last reviewed: February 2011

We all have the right to work in a safe and healthy environment. A compliant health and safety culture requires all workplace parties to adhere to occupational health and safety requirements and to pay constant, appropriate attention to workplace health and safety. To help workplace parties stay safe, the Ministry of Labour has created tools to help identify hazards in various sectors.

These tools present some common hazards; not all potential hazards and potential precautions are illustrated or highlighted in the tools. Some of the precautions described are legal requirements, while others are best practices.

To view the tools you need the free Adobe Flash Player version 7 or higher.
