article imageCity Of Toronto Declared A 'High-Risk' Employer

By Brandigal (Donna)     Feb 26, 2007 in Business
A poor health and safety record has prompted Ontario's labour ministry to designate the City of Toronto a "high-risk" employer.
Being tagged 'high-risk', this means that the city will have more detailed safety inspections, and the insurance they pay to Workplace Safety Insurance Board will be a lot higher.
Those at risk are firefighters and paramedics, Toronto Water workers and nursing home workers but the city is hoping to cut workplace injuries by 20 per cent next year.
Last year they paid $29.8 million to the Workplace Safety Insurance Board.
The 2003 death of a building inspector also is making the city face an Occupational Health and Safety Act charge. The charge is because they are saying the worker was not properly trained. He died because he fell through an open stairway.
