According to the Alberta Occupational, Health and Safety Act, Regulation and Code, Chapter 2, Due Diligence, best practice “adds an important new dimension to your standard of care. Part of being duly diligent is looking outward. You must be aware of what’s happening in your industry. If another company has a serious injury incident that might well happen in your operations, you must examine it and see if the situations and/or the lessons learned apply to you, if they do, you may have to alter your own practices.”
Failing to Comply Can Be Costly
Can you afford the consequences of not complying with the Occupational, Health and Safety Act, Regulation and Code? Are you aware that fines for non-compliance of the Occupational, Health and Safety Act, Regulation and Code, for a first time offence is “not more than $500,000.00”?
The courts have and are exercising their power to charge, prosecute and fine companies in Alberta. Are you prepared for this? Have you done your due diligence? Best practice is for you and your company. Please contact AJB Safety Consulting Services Ltd. for more information and a free consultation as to your level of diligence in regards to best practice, bench marking and industry standards.
