Health and Safety

The Ministry of Labour is responsible for injury and illness prevention in Ontario’s workplaces. We also play a role in promoting workplace health and safety and actively support and work with the Ministry of Labour and Chief Prevention Officer.

One way we are promoting health and safety is through our new health and safety tools.

  • Using our online tool Compass, anyone can find and compare health and safety statistics for workplaces across the province.
  • Our new Workwell app is a tool that you can use to evaluate your health and safety management system and improve health and safety and return to work in your workplace.
