Before you start construction or hire a contractor, read this!

From a neighbour in the Kingsway area:

"I am sure many of you have suffered from the abusive noises being generated by gas powered concrete chop saws. While I could regale you with a plethora of facts and legislation which prohibit the current practices, I believe that we can get some quick action going throughout our neighbourhoods with the "Good Neighbour" information approach as suggested in the attached information sheet which we could e-mail around to our close friends and neighbours for those of you who agree with the approach.

If I may steal a page from a Toronto Police Neighbourhood Watch Session, vandals will look for an easy place to break into first and just move on if a place looks secure. So it is with some Contractors, they don't want a hassle from well informed home owners or neighbours they simply want to bull their way through any situation and get paid as soon as possible.

You may find Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) information on occupational health and safety issues related to construction noise at: . The little chart below is a screen grab from one of the videos on the MOL site."
