Workplaces are not notified in advance of an inspection and the onus is on the facility to ensure that it is in compliance. Workplaces can stay ahead of the curve by building best practices into their safety programs and by ensuring their facilities are up to par before a blitz is in progress.
Following is a partial list of upcoming mining-related blitzes and initiatives:
|Occupational disease in mines and mining plants||Health and safety||Mining||July 1, 2017 – August 31, 2017
