Ontario has launched a new toll-free number – 1-877-202-0008 – to report workplace health and safety incidents or unsafe work practices.

On Nov. 1, 2010, the Ministry of Labour launched a Health & Safety Contact Centre, which allows anyone, anywhere in Ontario to call one number to report a workplace health and safety incident, critical injury, fatality or work refusal. The public can also call that number if they suspect unsafe work practices or for general inquiries.

The number operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
