Sector Plans

  • Content last reviewed: August 2017

As part of Safe At Work Ontario, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) develops annual enforcement plans that focus on hazards and health and safety issues specific to workplaces in different sectors. The plans describe the specialized and professional services office of the ministry, as well as programs for the industrial, health care, construction and mining sectors. The plans explain what inspectors will be focusing on in each sector during an inspection.

New to the sector plans this year is additional background information on hazards as well as tools and resources relevant for those hazards. The priorities in the province’s Healthy and Safe Ontario Workplaces Strategy are:

  • assist the most vulnerable workers
  • support occupational health and safety improvements in small businesses
  • address the highest hazards that result in occupational injuries, illnesses or diseases
  • build collaborative partnerships
  • integrate service delivery and system-wide planning
  • promote a culture of health and safety

To aid the ministry in achieving the goals described in the strategy, these sector plans have been aligned with priorities identified in consultation with workplace health and safety system partners and stakeholders.
