MOL Blitzes for 2020


MOL Blitzes for 2020

The Ministry of Labour has set out its construction industry initiatives for 2020.  Initiatives are essentially target areas where MOL inspectors will focusing on compliance to regulations and legislation.

Competent Supervision    July 2, 2020 through August 7, 2020  

Excavation and Utility Contracts.    October 1, 2020 through November 2, 2020

SP Safety Solutions can help you prepare your supervisor by ensuring they get adequate training, to include the mandatory Supervisor Health and Safety Awareness training.  We can provide supervisors with user-friendly documents and records that will help them to demonstrate competency.   In addition to this, when requested, SP Safety can conduct random site visits to ensure legislative requirements and that paperwork needed to demonstrate competency is being done as required.

If your workers are involved in excavations or utility work, your site will required a competent supervisor as above, workers trained in trenching and the mandatory Worker Health and Safety Awareness training, first aid training etc.  We can help to assess your sites for hazards and help you to develop, implement, and document (the most commonly overlooked step) proper controls for the protection of your workers.  We will help you to ensure that the proper equipment is on site with the proper paperwork to ensure regular inspections are performed. And these are just a few of the things you need to consider in preparing for the MOL blitzes

If you have questions about preparing for these initiative, contact us and we can discuss your needs and answer your questions.
