I really like what they are doing in Ontario. Occupational Health and Safety Officers can can also issue tickets (much like a police officer)or initiate prosecution for non-compliance when they find people doing something unsafe. Tickets go on the person's record and there is often a fine involved. For instance, a supervisor who fails to ensure a worker wears fall protection equipment can expect to receive a ticket with a $295 fine. Maybe Newfoundland and Labrador could take a page out of their book. http://www.healthandsafetyontario.ca/Resources/Articles/WSN/So,-you-got-a-ticket.aspx
