Risking It All: The Consequences of Failing to Uphold Worker Safety Regulations
Through a review of some recent high-profile workplace accidents which resulted in catastrophic injuries or fatalities, this session will focus on the risks associated with responsible parties failing to uphold work safety regulations. The session will address issues like who is responsible for upholding such regulations, what the consequences can be for failing to do so, and the contemporary approach of government regulators such as WorkSafeBC to these incidents. This session will be relevant to anyone involved in the construction process, including persons responsible for the design or planning of construction methods.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Current understanding of Workplace Safety Regulations in British Columbia
2. Understand the responsibility and consequences of failing to uphold these regulations
3. Approach and response of government regulators such as WorkSafeBC
