Ottawa, ON-based Ottawa Fastener Supply has recently begun educating their clientele on the latest fall safety protection requirements enacted by the Ontario Ministry of Labour. An example of the latest regulations is the new policy that states all equipment used on a job site must now have an end-of-life date attached to the product. By highlighting the latest safety regulations within the construction marketplace, Ottawa Fastener Supply can now help clients select the optimal safety products for their coming 2015 and 2016 projects.

The Ontario government is continuously looking at ways to enhance the safety of workers on construction sites. The latest regulations imposed by the Ontario government are designed to further secure all work teams and ensure companies are taking the proper safety measures. As trusted specialists for a broad range of construction safety supply and equipment, the team at Ottawa Fastener Supply is now highlighting the new government regulations.

In addition to requiring that all equipment used on the job site have a date of manufacture attached, the Ontario government has now mandated that equipment produced prior to the latest legislation must pass a safety inspection before being used on any job sites. This means that companies must research the safety standards, and inspection requirements, for fall protection equipment and work with experts such as Ottawa Fastener Supply to ensure safe and effective equipment is used on their work sites.

Finally, all new workers must complete up-to-date training with the new Working At Heights Training program. There is a two-year transition period for workers who currently meet the requirements. Please see Ministry of Labour: Working At Heights for more information.
