Rules for the use of stilts in residential construction in Ontario

As a home renovation contractor, can you legally clomp around on stilts if you’re doing drywalling or insulation, etc.?

Each year, thousands of employees suffer electrical contact injuries, with millions exposed to this danger on a daily basis.

Protect yourself – Vacation scams

Free or “discounted” vacation scam
This variation involves fraudulent offers of free or discounted vacations using company names like Expedia, Air Canada, Transat, WestJet and others. The potential victim receives a cold call, usually automated, advising that they have won a destination vacation.

Protect yourself – Social Networks

Practice safe social networking
Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are a great way to stay in touch with family, reconnect with friends, share news and photos and broadcast what’s on your mind.

Protecting yourself – Using Passwords

Your password: The key to your personal information.
Think of your password as a guard that stands between your personal information and potential online risks.
