Health and Safety Inspection Blitzes and Initiatives

  • Content last reviewed: July 2017

Workplace injuries and fatalities can usually be traced to a few root causes that may vary by sector. The Ministry of Labour's proactive inspection blitzes and initiatives on sector-specific hazards are designed to raise awareness and increase compliance with health and safety legislation.

Blitzes and initiatives are announced in advance and results are reported after they are completed. The ministry tracks each sector to determine if there are long-lasting increases in compliance and decreases in injuries.
