The Government of Ontario has established an advisory group to assist in the development and implementation of a Construction Health and Safety Action Plan (CHSAP). The group includes senior construction union executives and executives from major general contractors and homebuilding companies. The CHSAP aims to strengthen workplace injury and illness prevention in the construction sector.
The aim of this advisory group is to find the best ways to:
• Improve "commitment" to health and safety outcomes in the construction industry;
• Enhancing OH&S training for workers, including improving supervisory training, training for new workers, and understanding of construction legislation and regulations; and,
• Work with other enforcement authorities and municipalities to improve safety.
