Promoting workplace safety

(Dec 29, 2006)

Everyone working in Ontario has the right to a safe workplace, but for the thousands of people with disabilities employed or seeking employment, getting the information they need to ensure their safety at work can be a challenge.

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) offers a range of resources. All are intended to produce safer and ,more knowledgeable disabled workers who have the confidence and knowledge they need to work safely.

The multilingual hotline responds to calls in several languages. The TTY is also always available for deaf or hard of hearing clients.

The number is:
Toll Free: 1-800-465-5606
TTY: 1-800-387-0050.

WSIB also has a dedicated outreach specialist available to take health and safety and prevention information out to disabled people in their communities by attending community events, workshops, conferences and seminars.
