Supervisor OH&S Responsibilities Part 1 (Federal) (by request only)

(Federal Jurisdiction)

Supervisors play a critical role in the workplace because they have the authority to oversee the work of others.  As such, supervisors have considerable responsibilities under Occupational Health & Safety Legislation.  A supervisor is required to be qualified by knowledge, training and experience in the work they oversee, be familiar with the legislation that applies to their workplace and knowledgeable about actual or potential workplace hazards, so they can in turn advise workers about these hazards. In this course participants will:

  • Discuss legal requirements and responsibilities (Federal).  State the supervisor’s role in addressing work refusals and conducting investigations.
  • Identify the supervisor’s role in conducting workplace inspections.
  • Learn the principles of demonstration of “due diligence”.

This program also reviews relevant case law and provisions of the Criminal Code of Canada (Bill C-45) to help participants better identify types of work that are supervisory in nature and their related legal duties, and understand the consequences of non-compliance.

Audience: Federal Supervisors, Managers and Worker Representatives.
