As the name implies, a hazard prevention program is a workplace-specific program designed to prevent work-related injuries and diseases. These programs are prepared in response to the hazards at a particular workplace.The federal Hazard Prevention Program Regulations were developed in close consultation with employer and employee representatives.
Under these regulations, employers are required to update or create their own hazard prevention programs. These programs will take into account the size of the company or organization and the nature of its activities.
The Labour Program makes available the necessary information tools and resources to help employers set up and implement their own prevention programs adapted to each workplace.
