The Ontario Ministry of Labour is hosting a webinar Wednesday to outline safety protocols for businesses.
Emma Payne of the Ontario Pork Industry Council said it should be of special interest to farmers, especially those who employ temporary foreign workers.
The webinar aims to:
- Raise awareness and compliance amongst farm workers, supervisors and employers about COVID-19 health and safety requirements
- Enhance protection for temporary foreign agricultural workers living and working on farming and agricultural operations in the province
- Increase compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and applicable regulations in the farming community
- Help stop the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and in the community.
