I’ve been recruiting quite a bit lately for entry level professional positions. It is heartbreaking to see the resumes of recent university or college graduates vying for their first career job in the business world, especially when most have Mac-jobs for work experience and don’t have well-designed resumes. Perhaps I’m noticing recent grad resumes because my son just graduated from university. I want to call them up and give them pointers on redesigning their resumes.

Health and safety is important. There is a new Ministry of Labour (MOL) Ontario requirement to post a new “Health & Safety at Work – Prevention Starts Here” poster in the workplace.
One of the recommendations from the 2010 Dean Report was to create a health and safety poster that outlines:
- the rights and responsibilities of stakeholders (employees, supervisors, employers) in the workplace,
- how to access additional health and safety information,
- how to get in touch with a MOL inspector,
- and contact information such as a toll free number for questions.
The poster is available for download for free, in English, French, and 15 different languages, and must be printed on 11” x 8.5” paper.
The new poster is mandatory and must be posted in the workplace as soon as possible. The MOL will be enforcing this starting October 1, 2012.

Be safe, and promote a safe and healthy workplace.
