Although occupational health and safety is regulated by the federal and provincial governments, the trends, issues and concerns are similar throughout the nation. In order to review the effectiveness of these regulations we must be able to identify the source of these strategies. This issue, I have reviewed government Web sites and other resources that provide information on OHS strategies. As occupational health and safety is a universal concern, I have also referenced some international OHS Web sites that may prove to be of value in developing a “best practices” model.
