Protect your workers.


Safety3

Construction companies are required to have health & safety programs that protect their workers. This is required under O. Reg. 213/91.

As an industry standard, construction companies are also required to maintain a current, up to date clearance certificate with the Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) before they are permitted to bid on contracts or tenders regardless of their price.

Along with a valid clearance certificate the contractor may also be required to produce the policies and procedures that the company operates under to ensure the safety of all their workers.

If your company is one of the many in Ontario who have not yet developed these programs and policies, WorkSmart Safety & HR Solutions can assist you with this process. We will work with you to develop all of the necessary programs that will protect you and your employees should you have an incident or be called upon to comply with an audit or inspection from the Ministry of Labour (MOL).
