OHS Act & Regulations
All farmers must understand and comply with their duties and responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act and regulations. Farmers are responsible to ensure all workers do what is required by provincial law. While everyone on the farm is responsible for health and safety, the farmer has the greatest degree of responsibility.
