OHS - Legislation - Acts and Regulations


Is your organization in compliance with today's health and safety regulations? This is an important question not only for workplace health and safety, but also for the bottom line, as it's quickly becoming a prerequisite for bidding on contracts or becoming an approved vendor.

Occupational Health and Safety Practitioners encounter a complex tangle of legislation, guidelines, and regulations. This course will help you unravel the confusion by identifying key pieces of federal and provincial legislation, such as the Workers Compensation Act and Bill C-45. In this course, you will learn the importance of due diligence and its use in protecting your organization from liability. This course also identifies the roles of important safety organizations such as WorkSafeBC, the BC Safety Authority, and the Employers' Advisers Office.
