BILL C-45

An Act to amend the Criminal Code (criminal liability of organizations)

Recently-passed changes to the Canadian Criminal Code will hold ALL organizations and individuals criminally liable if they fail to take reasonable steps to prevent workplace accidents.

Tony,
If you are watching this one, thanks for posting this! [Linked Image]
I would like to talk about the actual ramifications of this Legislation.
And now the Questions:
  • How do you control your employees to an extent, that you know what they are doing every minute of the working day?
  • What ever happened to personal responsibility, in a workplace?.
    {The reason I ask this is because the boss normally gets lumbered with the cost when a guy has an accident, doing something stupid}
  • Why aren't Safety Officers given any powers to suspend workers that do stupid acts?.
    {That's their job isn't it?}
