Workplace Safety Is International

It used to be the case that companies had one or two locations in the same general area. But these days, many companies are huge international organizations with multiple locations in several jurisdictions—and even different companies.

For example, in a recent poll, you told us that your company has facilities in:

  • Canada and in one province/territory (42%)
  • Canada and the US (32%)
  • Canada but in multiple provinces/territories (16%)
  • Canada and other countries, not including the US (10%).

Having locations in different jurisdictions with different OHS laws makes a safety coordinator’s job especially challenging. Although the OHS laws across Canada and in the US have many things in common, there are differences. And your company’s OHS program needs to recognize and incorporate the different requirements.

The OHS Insider is designed to help you comply with Canada’s various OHS laws.

For those of you with locations in the US as well as Canada, we have a new sister website that can help you comply with the US’s OHS laws.
