    Just got this info. I was advised that, in February 2012, MOL inspectors will be looking for hazards involving ergonomics and manual material handling that can lead to musculoskeletal injuries.

    Hello Members,
    It was brought to my attention that Labor Canada is going to launch an audit of "carriers" to ensure that each "carrier" has a HAZARD PREVENTION PROGRAM GUIDE in place. As most of us already have in place compliance and safety training programs that meet or exceed the requirements, Canada Labor - HRSDC apparently will be ensuring that we also have this particular item in place. I was a little confused as our training videos, phamlets, on site courses already go in depth with what is a hazard and how to prevent a hazard. Apparently this is not going to be sufficient? Does anyone have any further insite to this?
