Frequently Asked Questions:
(Note – the answers to the following questions reference Ontario legislation. Call us if you have similar questions about other jurisdictions, or need help with other health and safety issues.)
Am I responsible for the health and safety of a contractor I engage to do work for me?
The Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act defines an employer as “a person who employs one or more workers or contracts for the services of one or more workers…” This means that you have responsibilities to protect the health and safety of contractors as well as your direct employees. Some projects have a General Contractor who engages subcontractors. In such a case, the General Contractor (called a “Constructor” in the Ontario OHS Act) has obligations with respect to the health and safety of everyone on the project, including subcontractors. It is always a good idea to put your health and safety expectations of contractors in the contract agreement.
Do I need a Confined Space Program in my workplace?
It is not always easy to determine whether you have a confined space that meets the regulatory definition. If you think you have such spaces, you should assess whether they meet the definition of confined space. If they do, and workers may enter the space, you need a written Confined Space Program, specific entry procedures, among many other requirements.
