Welcome to the Lighthouse Initiative!
The Lighthouse Initiative is a new component for us. The goal for this initiative is to help vulnerable and marginalized workers learn more about their rights and the laws that guide them as a worker in Ontario. We strongly believe that whether it’s understanding Ontario’s health & safety rights and obligations, knowing what the minimum wage is or even what to do if you are injured in the workplace – it is your right as a worker in Ontario to know the facts.
Through this facet of Prevention Link, we intend to serve two categories of vulnerable workers:
(a) those returning to work after an injury; and
(b) those who may not have been injured, but have limited knowledge of occupational health and safety laws and available resources.
Like a maritime lighthouse that is perched atop a solid foundation, sends a beacon or message outward, and utilizes information about its surroundings; Prevention Link’s Lighthouse Initiative is an invaluable source of information for workers to understand their health & safety rights and obligations in Ontario.
