    Hi Veronica,

    OHSA applies to almost every worker, supervisor, employer, and workplace in Ontario, including workplace owners, constructors, and suppliers of equipment or materials to workplaces covered by the Act.

    OHSA does not apply to:

    · Work is done by the owner or occupant, or a servant, in a private residence or on the connected land [Section 3(1)];

    · Workplaces under federal jurisdiction, although federal authorities accept those outside contractors and their employees, while in federal workplaces, are under provincial jurisdiction.
