Exhibiting At The Fair | Exhibitor Toolkit
Health & Safety Regulations
In accordance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act, the Toronto Gift Fair requires that all reasonable steps and precautions be taken to protect the health and safety of all persons involved in the production of its fairs. Prevention of injury is a key objective, with every possible measure to be taken to provide a safe, healthy work environment. To succeed, these safety initiatives require that every Exhibitor assume responsibility for helping to meet this objective. Exhibitors must, therefore, carefully read the applicable sections of the Occupational Health & Safety Act, and fully understand their responsibilities and that of their employees/hired workers while at the fair.
For more information on the Act, visit the Health & Safety section at www.labour.gov.on.ca.
In compliance with established safe work practices and procedures, and as a minimum requirement, the Toronto Gift Fair asks that all persons on the show floor during move-in and move-out wear protective/safety shoes. Additional personal protective equipment, such as hardhats and safety goggles, must be made available to your staff where overhead activity is taking place.

HELP US ENSURE EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THE SHOW IS SAFE & PROTECTED!
Establish safe work practices and procedures, and as a minimum requirement, the Toronto Gift Fair asks that all persons on the show floor during move-in and move-out wear protective/safety shoes. Additional personal protective equipment, such as hardhats and safety goggles, must be made available to your staff where "overhead compliance activity" is taking place.
As a Toronto Gift Fair exhibitor, it is your responsibility to inform/contact all persons you will be hiring (i.e., your staff and any outside contractors hired to set up your booth, bring in your product, or anyone required to be on the show floor during move-in and out), that they must wear safety shoes, as well as any other necessary protective equipment, to keep them safe from injury.
