    Ontario Ministry Of Labour Targets Young Worker And New Worker Health And Safety - Canada NewsWire
    This initiative to improve safety among young and new workers is part of a broader ministry plan to reduce workplace injuries by 20 per cent by 2008.
    The plan includes:
    - Hiring 200 new health and safety inspectors, 100 of whom are already at work across Ontario, with 100 more being hired over the next year.
    - The 'High Risk' and 'Last Chance' initiatives, targeting workplaces with poor health and safety performance records and high costs to the WSIB.
    - A new annual process to update occupational exposure limits for the over 700 hazardous substances covered by Ontario regulation.

    'More than 49,000 young workers were injured and some even killed on the job last year,' said Bentley, 'No summer job is worth an injury.'
