What should you know about PHSR's?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Did you know that employers are required under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) to conduct a PHSR prior to the operation or use of newly installed or modified apparatus?
  • Do you know under what circumstances a PHSR exemption would be applicable?
  • Are you aware a PHSR should be conducted by a Professional Engineer?
  • Are you aware that in the case of a workplace accident, employers and supervisors can be charged and fined under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act?
  • Did you know the Ministry of Labour has more than 400 highly trained inspectors on the ground inspecting jobs sites every day.
  • Could you provide evidence of your due-diligence to a Ministry Of Labour inspector?
