Occupational Health and Safety and the IRS
The IRS or Internal Responsibility System is a system which ensures that every individual working within an organization in Ontario.
Understands and practices their responsibility for maintaining the safety standards stipulated by the Occupational Health and Safety Act or OHSA to suit their respective area of work and operation. In addition to functioning both singly and as a team, the employees of an organization are required to contribute towards ensuring safe practices at work and take initiative to resolve disputes and work towards the improvement of company policies.
The president of an organization is responsible for directly overseeing a successful establishment, implementation, and promotion of the Internal Responsibility System that progressively develops and improves with time. In other words, the IRS aims to achieve longer intervals between work-related illnesses and workplace accidents and mishaps.
Apart from this, there are a plethora of agencies and committees such as the Joint Health and Safety Committee, Safe Workplace Associations, the Ministry of Labor, Unions and the like, that work towards assisting the IRS and ensuring its successful implementation within an organization to promote a safe and healthy atmosphere for all the employees working there.
