Are you ready for Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation 297/13?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Are you ready for Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation 297/13?

Effective July 1, 2014 a new regulation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) comes into effect.  This regulation deals with the training of workers.  The definition of worker for the purpose of the OHSA is a person who performs work or supplies services for monetary compensation.  As a result this regulation applies to more than just your employees and would include casual labourers and subcontractors.

Under this requirement, workers are categorized between workers and supervisors with different levels of training required for each category.  The only exemption from this training if proof is provided that the worker has completed similar training either with their current employer prior to the enactment of regulation 297/13 or with a former employer.

Training must be provided and documented as complete.  The documentation must be kept on file until six months after the worker is no longer compensated by you.

A former worker can request a copy of the proof of training up to six months after leaving an employer.

Training for workers must be provided as soon as possible after their start date.  Training for supervisors must be completed within one week of promotion to supervisor.  All workers on staff must complete their training by July 1, 2014.

The OHSA provides free training workbooks for workers and supervisors.  Signed copies of the workbooks can be kept on file as proof of completion of the training.  There is also an elearning tool for both worker and supervisor training.   This takes approximately one hour to complete and a proof of completion certificate will be received upon completion.  Alternately there are several organizations that provide training.

Remember that time spent by an employee in training that is required by the employer or by law is considered to be working time and therefore the employee must be compensated.

For more information, please visit the Ministry of Labour’s training website at: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/training/

AODA Customer Service Standards – Are You In Compliance?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

AODA Customer Service Standards – Are You In Compliance?

Although the requirements under the Accessibility Standard for Customer Service have been in effect since January 1, 2012, the Ontario government is planning on starting to conduct compliance audits in 2014.

For employers with less than 20 employees this means you must create a customer service policy for customers with disabilities.  You must also train all of your employees in regards to this policy.

In addition, employers with more than 20 employees must document the policy and training and report to Service Ontario on their compliance with the Accessibility Act.  The policy must be available for your customers to view.

For this purpose, the number of employees includes full time, part time, seasonal and contract employees.

The government has the power to conduct inspections, assign monetary penalties and prosecute organizations that persist in not meeting their obligations under this Act.

As of January 1, 2014 there are new requirements for organizations with 50 or more employees.  These new standards include the implementation and documentation of a multi-year accessibility plan to prevent and remove barriers under the Accessibility Standards Regulations.  Also, any updates to your website must conform to the World Wide Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level A (unless an exception applies).  A compliance report on this new area must be filed on or before December 31, 2014.

As of January 1, 2015 new construction and renovations will be subject to updated accessibility regulations.  This should be kept in mind when planning updates to your facilities.

The requirements under the AODA are changing annually.  If you would like to register to receive email updates of the requirements, please go to http://www.mcss.gov.on.ca/en/mcss/programs/accessibility/questions/form/csForm.aspx and register.

CRA news release on Heartbleed bug

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Statement by the Commissioner of the Canada Revenue Agency on the Heartbleed bug

After learning that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) systems were vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug, the CRA acted quickly to protect taxpayer information by removing public access to its online services on April 8, 2014.

Since then, the CRA worked around the clock to implement a “patch” for the bug, vigorously test all systems to ensure they were safe and secure, and re-launch our online services late yesterday.

Regrettably, the CRA has been notified by the Government of Canada’s lead security agencies of a malicious breach of taxpayer data that occurred over a six-hour period. Based on our analysis to date, Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) of approximately 900 taxpayers were removed from CRA systems by someone exploiting the Heartbleed vulnerability. We are currently going through the painstaking process of analyzing other fragments of data, some that may relate to businesses, that were also removed.

The CRA is one of many organizations that was vulnerable to Heartbleed, despite our robust controls. Thanks to the dedicated support of Shared Services Canada and our security partners, the Agency was able to contain the infiltration before the systems were restored yesterday. Further, analysis to date indicates no other CRA infiltrations have occurred either before or after this breach.

Beginning today, the Agency is putting in place measures to support and protect the individuals affected by the breach. Each person will receive a registered letter to inform them of the breach. A dedicated 1-800 number has also been set up to provide them with further information, including what steps to take to protect the integrity of their SIN. The Agency will not be calling or emailing individuals to inform them that they have been impacted – we want to ensure that our communications are secure and cannot be exploited by fraudsters through phishing schemes.

The CRA will also provide those who have been affected with access to credit protection services at no cost. And we will apply additional protections to their CRA accounts to prevent any unauthorized activity.

On April 11, 2014, I informed the Privacy Commissioner of Canada of the breach. The RCMP are investigating.

As the Commissioner of the CRA, I want to express regret to Canadians for this service interruption. In particular, I share the concern and dismay of those individuals whose privacy has been impacted by this malicious act.

CRA online services are safe and secure. The CRA responded aggressively to successfully protect our systems. We have augmented our monitoring and surveillance measures, so that the security of the CRA site continues to meet the highest standards.

I know that all employees of the Canada Revenue Agency join me in appreciation for the cooperation and patience of the public, businesses and representatives as we resolved this situation.

Andrew Treusch
Commissioner
