Making sure those working in the mining sector go home to their families at the end of their shift is the goal of a health and safety review.

The Ministry of Labour will launch a comprehensive review early in the new year.

Ontario’s Minister of Mines, Michael Gravelle says ensuring the safety of Ontario's 27,000 mine workers is a top priority of his. He calls the announcement timely, given the technological advances and changes in the way mining is conducted. 

Gravelle says he believes industry and labour unions are very supportive of the review.

The province's chief prevention officer will lead the advisory group. 

More details on the review are going to be announced next month.

Safety review?? Gravelle just keep the government and it's ministries creating grief and road blocking the mining companies and you will not need to do a safety review because they will not be any mines in Ontario to worry about worker .

This liberal government has screwed up so much in this province.... Hydro, gas plant fiasco, mining consultations and the ring of fire, green energy fiasco and costs, e health, Orgne, and the list goes on.
