Canada Labour Code, Part II - Work Place & Policy Health and Safety Committees


Bill C-12, which came into effect in September 2000, amended the Canada Labour Code, Part II, by introducing the requirement for a Policy Health and Safety Committee for work places with more than 300 employees; amending the powers and duties of Work Place Health and Safety Committees; and by extending the duties of employers – particularly in relation to protection of third parties. Participants in this course will gain a solid understanding of the application and provisions of CLC-II, and their roles and responsibilities as Work Place and / or Policy Health and Safety Committee Members.
