Workplace and workers safety is everyone’s responsibility and as such, all participants must comply with the legislation contained in the Occupational Health & Safety Act, which is governed by the Province of Ontario. All persons active in the onsite activities should be properly trained in and aware of the appropriate safety responsibilities pertinent to the tasks they are performing. All equipment should be inspected and in proper working condition. It is required that all persons involved in the move-in process wear proper protective footwear. In areas designated as construction zones, and where overhead work is being done, hardhats and proper protective footwear are mandatory per the Occupational Health & Safety Act.
As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure staff/third party contracts comply with the Legislation. Your booth space is considered an extension of your office and as such it is your responsibility to ensure your staff/contractors comply.
To ensure that all parties take safety seriously, we require all exhibitors to read, return and inform your staff of their responsibilities as outlined in the Exhibitor Health & Safety Compliance Declaration form. Exhibitors will be prohibited from setting up on the Show floor if the Compliance Declaration form is not completed by October 27, 2017 and complied with.
Please take a moment to review this information now with your staff to avoid delays during your scheduled move-in time.
