Posted onApril 25, 2014
NOTO communicated a news item on Tuesday March 11, 2014 announcing the Ministry of Labour Pre-Inspection webinar for the Tourism, Recreational and Hospitality Sector. We encourage everyone to make a special effort to participate in this webinar. Update
There has been a slight change in the information we sent out previously. The webinar URL has changed. We have included the most up to date information in the Ministry of Labour meeting announcement which is included below.
In addition NOTO will provide some support in the delivery of this webinar. Due to the nature of these sessions, it may not be possible to answer and address all your questions during the course of the session, so we encourage you to email your questions during the webinar to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to bulk more common themes and have them addressed during the question and answer period of the webinar. We will do a follow up with additional information afterward to be sure that your questions are addressed. We will make every effort to ensure that you are brought up to speed and fully understand what this initiative is about.
Further if there is an operator meeting (besides KDCA and NWOTA) that you know of and would like the Ministry of Labour to make a presentation addressing this issue please do not hesitate to contact us and we can assist you in making that arrangement.
Please do not hesitate to contact the NOTO office if you have any questions.

The Ministry of Labour Announcement Tourism, Recreation and Hospitality sector remote access enforcement initiative
The Ministry of Labour’s Northern Region would like to announce an upcoming heightened enforcement initiative to remote access workplaces within the Tourism, Recreation and Hospitality sector.
The initiative will take place throughout the summer of 2014 and will begin June 23rd and run until September 19th, 2014. During this initiative Ministry of Labour Inspectors will focus on making sure:
Employers are providing information, instruction and supervision in order to protect the health and safety of workers
Equipment, material and protective devices provided by the employer are maintained in good condition
Employers have policies/procedures & equipment in place to protect workers from the hazards of working alone and working on/near water
In order to assist the sector in preparing for this initiative, MOL staff will make themselves available to speak at operator meetings and will provide a free webinar for employers.
Please take the time to ensure you and your staff is working safely and in compliance with the Act and Regulations. Use the resources located within the Ministries website and work with your health and safety system partners. Peter Augruso
