OHS Incident Investigations


  OHS investigates serious work site incidents, including fatalities, which fall under provincial legislation.  
Ever wonder what happens when a call is received, it is triaged by the Investigations Unit and assigned to an OHS investigator? 
 
An OHS officer has the authority to:
  • enter the scene of the incident
  • ask questions to figure out the causes and circumstances of the incident
  • ask for information from anyone who may have knowledge related to the incident
  • seize or take samples of any substance, material, product, tool, appliance or equipment that was present at, involved in or related to the incident
  • stop all or some activities at the work site
  • take other appropriate actions to ensure compliance with the legislation and ensure health and safety is protected

“The Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support, known as Threads of Life, is a Canadian registered charity dedicated to supporting families after a workplace fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease.”

 

A workplace accident can occur at any time and may have devastating affects not only for the person who is injured but for their loves ones as well.

Here is one such story, provided by the Threads of Life.

 

A stepladder is such a simple tool – we’ve all used one, at home or at work. Maybe we figure if we fall, it’s no big deal: a few bruises. Earl Mino’s story is a reminder that a simple tool still has its hazards, and a fall can have the worst consequences. Earl was employed in the meat department of a grocery store, and was using a ladder to place some trays on a high shelf when he fell.
