Work From Home: OHS Compliance During the Pandemic
Telecommuting wasn’t a thing when the OHS laws were first written several decades ago. As a result, they don’t talk about telecommuting or say one way or another the various measures employers must take to ensure their workers’ health and safety also apply when workers work from home. Result: The OHS laws may apply to workers who work from home.
Now, fast forward to 2020, approximately 4 in 10 (38.9%) Canadian workers are in the jobs that can be carried out from home and will likely continue to continue working from home even after the pandemic ends according to Statistics Canada 2020.
It boils down to interpreting what the laws say.
