The Ontario Ministry of Labour schedules inspection blitzes and initiatives to protect workers' rights and to enhance employers' awareness of their responsibilities. These safeguards align with both the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Employment Standards Act.

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:

 
 Focus Program Sector   Date
Occupational disease in mines and mining plants Health and safety  Mining  July 1, 2017 – August 31, 2017

 Falls – including slips and trips and musculoskeletal disorders in mines and mining plants Health and safety  Mining October 2, 2017 – November 30, 2017
Compliance on personal protective equipment and high visibility clothing Health and safety Mining February 1, 2018 – March 31, 2018
