About the Harmonization of Personal Protective Equipment Requirements
The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety gathered input on possible regulatory changes to The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 to align specific personal protective equipment requirements with those being adopted across Canada.
The proposed changes are part of an effort by provincial, territorial, and federal governments to harmonize regulatory standards in a number of areas. This includes occupational health and safety standards for the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including:
- Eye and face protection;
- Head protection;
- Foot protection;
- Hearing protection;
- Personal flotation devices; and
- First aid kits.
This public engagement has now concluded.
