HEALTH, SAFETY AND THE LAW/ DUE DILIGENCE
4 or 8 hour training programs
On an ever increasing basis, provincial Ministries / Departments of Labour are aggressively enforcing health and safety legislation. This enforcement specifically targets corporations as well as individuals.
Understanding, interpreting and implementing the minimum legal requirements applicable to your workplace and workplace activities can be a daunting task.
Many employers are unaware of the requirement to be in compliance with multiple pieces of legislation, ranging from provincial Occupational Health & Safety Acts and Regulations to federal requirements established under Bill C-45.
This program helps participants to become competent with respect to understanding and applying the applicable legislation.
This program can be tailored to the specific legislation within each province across Canada.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Identify the layout and format of applicable legislation.
Interpret specific requirements of the legislation, including issues such as machine guarding, safety committee functions, Inspector functions and powers, enforcement and prosecution options, general duties of employers, supervisors and workers, etc.
Review their specific workplace performance against relevant legal requirements.
