Health and Safety
The Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association (“OSWCA”) has compiled this draft occupational health and safety program (“Program”) for the general use by sewer and watermain contractors in Ontario who are creating their own occupational health and safety policies and programs. This Program is intended to increase awareness of a contractor’s occupational health and safety responsibilities and to act as a seed document for the development of personalized health and safety policies and programs. While the Program attempts to bring together issues concerning our industry, it should not be used without modification.
