Description

This book, written in an informative yet highly readable style, is designed to provide the reader with an overview of occupational health and safety (OH&S) law and practice across Canada. It combines a discussion of broad general principles with information pertaining to jurisdiction-specific legislative provisions in each Canadian jurisdiction. For this reason, it would be particularly suitable for occupational health and safety specialists, human resources practitioners and labour relations professionals in organizations that operate across multiple jurisdictions. In addition to the comprehensive commentary and practical guidance on complying with OH&S and workers' compensation legislation are charts and tables that highlight specific statutory provisions in each jurisdiction, along with several sample forms and templates readers can adapt for use in their own organizations.
