Bill 168 Compliance in Health Care Sector
Bill 168 is an Ontario legislation that was passed under the Occupational Health and Safety Act in 2010. It requires all providers of Health Care services in Ontario, including Chiropractors, to address and eliminate violence and harassment in the workplace by way of workplace risk assessments, the development of policies and programs, and mandatory training for all staff.
Who Must Comply and by When?
Chiropractic clinics and practices with 1 or more employees must comply with this legislation. The compliance deadline was June 15, 2010. Thus, any practice not in compliance with the legislative requirements is subject to costly fines in the thousands of dollars.
