Supervisor OH&S Responsibilities Part 1

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 those hazards.

In this course participants will:

  • Discuss legal requirements and responsibilities (Provincial and Federal).
  • State the supervisor’s role in addressing work refusals and conducting incident 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 understand types of work that are supervisory in nature, their related legal duties and the consequences of non-compliance.

Audience: Supervisors, Managers and Worker Representatives.

*Federal OH&S Legislation specific version available on request.
