Workplace Law Bulletin - New Rules For Noise Protection at All Ontario Workplaces

In December 2015, the Ministry of Labour approved a new noise regulation which comes into force on July 1, 2016. The new regulation, Ont. Reg. 381/15, made under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act, is intended to help protect all workers from noise-induced hearing loss, which the Ministry calls “a leading cause of occupational disease for Ontario workers.”
