On average, over 800 workers in Canada lose their lives to a disease or injury incurred from work-related causes. Tragically, most if not all, could have been prevented. Join Leader In Safety on April 28th, the National Day of Mourning, as we remember the fallen and their families, reflect on the events and renew our commitment to improve workplace health and safety.


Having a Chemical Safety Program in your workplace is not only the law, it reduces health and safety risks, lowers environmental impact, and reduces operating costs. Improper use, storage and handling of chemicals can cause injury, illness, disease, fire, explosions, or property damage. Leader In Safety will help your company develop a comprehensive chemical safety program that takes into account the purchasing, identifying, labeling, inventory, use, storage, cataloging, and disposal of chemicals, ensuring all laws and health and safety standards are adhered to. Give us a call to get started on your Chemical Safety Program.


When it comes to the responsibility for health and safety, everyone has a role to play. Governments enforce occupational health and safety legislation, conduct workplace inspections, share information, promote research, education and training.

Employers must take every reasonable measure to ensure a safe workplace, train and equip employees accordingly in terms of safety, emergency response, workplace hazards and hazardous substances, and report all critical injuries to the appropriate governing body.

New, young and experienced workers must work in compliance with the OH&S Act and regulations, use personal protective equipment and clothing as directed and immediately report all workplace hazards and dangers.

Make sure your company spends enough time with new and young workers to adequately explain the job to be performed, provide training and supervision. Explain the safety rules and importance of reporting health and safety concerns. Be available to answer questions and provide leadership by promoting and adhering to all health and safety regulations.
