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.
