Workplace Accidents and Occupational Health and Safety

Workplace Accidents happen.  Sometimes injuries are minor.  Sometimes injuries result in death.

Regardless of the outcome, the impact on your business can be significant on many levels.   And workplace accidents are not just about fines.  Far from it.

Even if you are accident free, the Ministry of Labour in Ontario is now far more active in enforcing the Occupational Health and Safety Act.  We find that our employer clients need a legal partner that is just as comfortable out on the construction site, as it is in a courtroom. 

Why?  Because understanding health and safety risk is all about understanding the business itself. 

We have specific experience in helping employers manage health and safety risk,  which includes:

  • Due diligence planning and assessment
  • Visits by the Ministry of Labour
  • Accident investigation
  • Emergency planning and response
  • Defending charges under the Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • Representation at Coroner’s Inquests
