abstract
"HR managers are responsible for mitigating the costs resulting from accidents, injuries and illnesses in the workplace. In order to manage and create effective organizational health and safety programs, they need to understand the employer's obligations under three major pieces of health and safety legislation in the workplace. This book deals with the employer's obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (return to work) and the Criminal Code amendments under Bill C-45 (personal liability for criminal negligence resulting in the death/injury of employees). The authors provide expert commentary and practical compliance solutions including sample policies and documents, checklists and an index to make the process of gathering health and safety information as quick and straightforward as possible. New in this edition: criminal prosecutions for health and safety violations; changes to hazardous materials regulations; updated examples of prosecutions under OHSA; changes to an employer's duty to report critical injuries and deaths; evolution of the law of workplace harassment and workplace violence."--Publisher's website.
