This program is designed to provide supervisors and managers with the necessary knowledge to help understand their responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Bill C-45 and other applicable legislation. As well, Canadian OHSA laws require managers and supervisors to understand the meaning of “due diligence” and how this process is used as a legal defence to OHSA charges. Employers must demonstrate that they have established an OHSA management system to identify, assess and control workplace hazards.
