About the Webinar

What you did in 2019 won’t be enough to keep your organization compliant in 2020. OHS laws are changing and changing fast. For many of you, the biggest compliance challenge will be posed by the significant new workplace harassment requirements taking effect in many jurisdictions. You will also need to be on top of the “harmonization” and other OHS regulatory changes of your province affecting everything from respiratory protection to traffic control. In addition to the new statutes and regulations, courts and arbitrators are drawing new lines on workplace drug testing and discipline that employers will need to be aware of to deal with the fallout from marijuana legalization. Meanwhile, OHS inspectors and prosecutors continue to apply the pressure. It’s a lot to deal with. But come spend an hour with us and we’ll break it all down–and offer a broader perspective on trends that have been shaping and will continue to shape OHS law in 2020.
