This Complimentary Session Includes Discussions On:

- Ontario’s Occupational Hygiene Regulations
- Recent Amendments to the Regulations and Exposure Limits
- Current Ontario Ministry of Labour Initiatives
- Developing Effective Hygiene Programs
- The Toxics Reduction Act and how it impacts your Hygiene Program
In the last several years, the Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) has been very active in the area of occupational hygiene, creating new, or amending existing regulations, respecting workplace exposures to chemical and physical agents. Year after year, Workplace Safety and Insurance Board statistics indicate that workplace-related fatalities from occupational disease outnumber those from traumatic injuries, by a large margin.
The key to preventing occupational disease is an effective Occupational Hygiene Program which takes a proactive and systematic approach to identifying, evaluating and controlling workplace exposures.
Steve Barnett, M.Eng., CIH, ROH, Vice President, Occupational Health & Safety, Pinchin Environmental. Steve is a Certified Industrial Hygienist with over 20 years of experience in the field of occupational hygiene.
