Due Diligence Bill C-45
Violating workplace Health and Safety guidelines is a serious crime, as described in Canada’s Bill C-45. This course outlines what qualifies as a breach of conduct with this bill, describes the penalties for doing so, and provides a number of strategies for keeping participants’ workplaces complicit with federal legislation.
Do your Supervisors & Managers know their legal responsibilities about the Occupational Health & Safety Act and the Workplace Safety & Insurance Act (WSIB)?
To be considered “competent” as described under section 25 (2) (c) of “The Act’, Workplace Supervisors and Managers must know the following:
- The concept of the Internal Responsibility System.
- The roles & duties of the Employer, Supervisor/Manager & Employee/Worker under the Health & Safety legislation.
- The concept of due diligence and “taking all the reasonable precautions.”
- The application of Health & Safety legislation to the workplace.
- How to identify hazards in the workplace.
- How to address work refusals.
- How to conduct accident investigations.
- How to properly document safety related activity.
Effective supervision and management is essential for the provision of a healthy and safe workplace. Supervisors and Managers, as agents for the Employer, have responsibilities and legal liability under Health & Safety legislation for the protection of workers.
