Keeping up with OHS

Employers in Newfoundland and Labrador’s natural resources sectors — mining, oil, energy — are experiencing a steady run of large capital projects that are driving the provincial economy to become one of the top performers in the country. They are doing so with a strong safety record, according to the companies involved and the regulators. That said, the boom times are putting new pressures on employers and workers alike. And while safety is a touchstone for many, it can also easily fall to the wayside without: a proven commitment by workers to continuously follow occupational health and safety regulations, a commitment by employers to provide the required supervision and work environment, and a commitment by government to fund the regulatory agencies tasked with ensuring safe workplaces. To that, The Telegram is taking a closer look at some standing OHS issues and why safety remains, even in the best of times, everyone’s responsibility.

The late-great basedball pitcher/broadcaster Dizzy Dean murdered the English language. Referring to the portly Don Zimmer one time he opined: "It looks like my friend is eatin' off the highest part of the hog". Hmmmmm.
