OGMA Newsletter – April 2016

The legal review of the Construction Lien Act is now well underway and the review group was to have prepared their recommendations for submission to the Ontario government by the end of March 2016. The OGMA has teamed up with the Prompt Payment Ontario (PPO) group to represent our interests in bringing fair payment terms into law.  To review up to date information on issues, surveys, and submissions, go to:  constructionlienactreview.com/documents

OGMA Spring Golf: Mark your calendar on Thursday, May 26, and plan to be at the outstanding Pipers Heath Golf Club. This event sells out every year so book early. Get more exposure for your company by sponsoring a hole or some of the other promotional opportunities.

Race Night: On June 22, get ready for an evening of exciting thoroughbred racing, outstanding food, and great camaraderie in the decadent Woodbine Club dining room at the Woodbine Racetrack.

Gone Fishin’: If you like getting up early and welcoming the sunrise with a beer, this event is for you.  OGMA members take to the waters of Lake Ontario for a day of salmon fishing. Details TBD.

Fall Golf: Mark your calendar on Thursday, Sept. 22, and plan to be at the renowned Country Club in Woodbridge (formerly the Board of Trade Golf Club).

Become an OGMA member: If you are conducting business in the glass industry in Ontario, the OGMA is the voice that represents your interests at the provincial and federal level.   Protect your business and support our fight for prompt payment legislation by becoming a member or as an associate member if you are a consultant to the industry.  Please visit the OGMA website for more information.

OGMA/WSPS safety manual: After a year of preparation, the safety manual is now ready for use by the metal and glass industry.  The manual was created by qualified health and safety professionals and is a timesaving tool enabling glass shops to establish their own company program. Not only will this support a company’s efforts to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses, it will also lower costs and time related to WSIB claims. Additionally, the health and safety manual provides proof of compliance with the new OHSA Regulation 297/13.
