Participation II

This course builds on the first Right to Participate course. In this course we are ignoring the Joint Health and Safety Committee and focusing on the single Health and Safety representative, normally found in workplaces with 6 to 19 workers. We know who the Health & Safety Rep should be and who the Health & Safety Rep represents. Now we want to know what the powers and duties of the Health & Safety Rep are.

New in 2011 was the requirement that Health & Safety Reps must be trained. Part of that training is a thorough understanding of the Health & Safety Rep’s purpose and role in OHS. What are the rules for workplace inspections by the Health & Safety Rep? Why do we say the Rep is really doing an audit rather than an inspection? When a serious accident occurs, what is the proper role of the Health & Safety Rep? What is the Rep supposed to do when there is an unsafe work refusal? There are some traps and pitfalls here.

How is the employer supposed to respond to a recommendation by the Health & Safety Rep? How is the Rep supposed to respond to an Order by the Ministry of Labour Inspector? Why is it that the Health & Safety Rep is required to be present in most cases when the Inspector is in the workplace? See how this is not a coincidence. We also examine the requirements for the workplace parties to assist the Rep as well as the question of whether the Rep could ever be liable for how the Rep carries out his or her duties. This course is a comprehensive review of the many roles and functions of the Health & Safety representative.
