TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2010) -

Time, Date & Location
2 p.m.
THURS., DECEMBER 16, 2010
QUEEN'S PARK MEDIA STUDIO

OFL President Sid Ryan will attend today's Ministry of Labour media conference for the launch of the Expert Advisory Panel on Occupational Health and Safety report.

The OFL worked intensively to achieve a report and recommendations that would result in fewer workplace deaths, injuries and occupational diseases.

The tragic deaths of four migrant workers who were killed when their scaffolding collapsed preceded the appointment of the Expert Advisory Panel. These deaths were the catalyst for the OFL's high-profile Kill a Worker, Go to Jail campaign. They were also at the forefront of the OFL's panel appointee's work and recommendations.
