Statement by Chief Prevention Officer,
George Gritziotis Issued: April 30, 2015
"In the past three weeks, the number of falls from heights in Ontario workplaces has been absolutely unacceptable. We have had too many fatalities and critical injuries.
These incidents are needless, intolerable tragedies that must stop!
... It’s the law that individuals who work at heights wear appropriate fall arrest equipment and take working at heights training.
For employers that don’t comply, the ministry will apply the full force of the law. "
