Fasken Martineau survey tracks OHS compliance in Canada

Wednesday, April 05, 2017 @ 8:19 AM | By John Chunn

How compliant is your organization with Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulations? Although an OHS program is required by law, 40 per cent of Canadian companies fail to follow the rules. In addition, half of employers are non-compliant with OHS legislation requiring them to take steps to prevent harassment or violence in the workplace.

Whatever your business, following the health and safety rules is a moral imperative, as well as a legal requirement.

The evidence indicates that safety compliance programs benefit employees and employers, prevent OHS prosecutions and enhance corporate social responsibility.

Fasken Martineau has conducted its second annual National OHS Employer Survey to better understand current trends across the country and to help employers comply with OHS regulations and do the right thing for their workers.

On April 20, Fasken Martineau is hosting an event to present the survey results, discuss the firm’s analysis of the statistics and let you know how your organization compares to other employers across Canada. For more information, click here.
