Workplace Safety


June 12: New OHS laws (erstwhile Bill 165) took effect clarifying which work injuries and illnesses must be reported and giving government safety inspectors broad new powers to crack down on repeat offenders including authority to:

  • Issue stop-work orders at all sites of a repeat offender
  • Seek a court order barring repeat offenders from working in an industry
  • Require repeat offenders to provide notification of their future work locations and activities.
