A field visit occurs when a ministry inspector visits a workplace to assess compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and regulations. A workplace is considered any land, premises, physical location or thing at, upon, in or near which a worker work. An inspector may visit the same workplace multiple times.
During the field visit, the inspector can issue orders to different companies ("contraveners") at a workplace to achieve compliance with OHSA and regulations. Inspectors can also issue legal direction to workplace parties notifying them of their obligation to co-operate and to provide requested information.
