Health & Safety Resources
Every worker in Ontario has a right to work in a safe environment free from violence, harassment and other hazards. The right to a safe workplace is outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, which falls under the purview of the Ministry of Labour.
It is the responsibility of the employer (school board) to ensure that the workplace is safe for all and that every reasonable measure has been taken to mitigate accidents, injuries, outbursts of violence, intimidation etc.
The sections below contain a variety of resources that can help you know about your rights, your responsibilities and how problematic situations may be improved or resolved.
