Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) promotes health and safety through partnerships, resources, education and enforcement of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Occupational Health and Safety

  • offers explanations on the minimum legislated standards;
  • provides health and safety advice and information to employers and workers; and
  • ensures compliance with the minimum legislated standards through partnerships, complaint resolution,
  • investigations of incidents and targeted inspections.

OHS is different than the WCB

  • OHS is a branch of the government (part of Employment and Immigration) while the WCB is an independent organization that is entirely funded by employer contributions.
  • OHS focuses on prevention of workplace injuries and illnesses while the WCB is an insurance program that helps injured workers return to work and obtain compensation for lost wages.
