Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act if any employer is convicted of an offense, they could be subject to a fine up to $500,000. Individuals, if convicted of an offense, can be fined up to $25,000 or jailed for up to one year or both. Under Bill C-45 the new amendment to the Criminal Code, in your organization, all persons who direct how work is performed, or have the authority to do so, are all at risk if they breach the new Occupational Health and Safety duty to take “reasonable steps” to prevent bodily harm in the workplace. Avoid becoming the subject of a criminal charge. This course will enable you to effectively understand the supervisor’s responsibilities for health and safety in the workplace, develop a level of “supervisor competency” as defined under the Act, practice due diligence through training and auditing, notification, reporting and record keeping obligations, documentation, monitoring, feedback and acting to correct health and safety problems, as well as developing an understanding of how to manage work refusals and work stoppages.
