  • Spring Event-Free Webinar – OHS Act Amendments 🗓

    Date: May 23, 2018 12:00 pm- 1:30 pm

    The duty of school boards to protect the health and safety of workers is extensive and the particular safeguards that should be put into place to satisfy the duty can be difficult to predict in advance of an accident. School boards may be surprised to learn that under the Occupational Health and Safety Act their obligations can even include a duty to proactively invent engineered solutions to hazards. This was the surprising result in a recent decision from the Provincial Court of Alberta.

    The Association of School Business Officials of Alberta (ASBOA) and the Alberta Education Health and Safety Association (AEHSA ) are pleased to work with McLennan Ross in providing a complimentary webinar specifically tailored for Alberta school jurisdictions. The webinar will address OHS issues specific to school jurisdictions, including the most recent case law, the implementation of hazard control systems and the trends in OHS sentencing.  Submit any questions or areas you want addressed in advance of the session.  the more we get the better the webinar –
