Résumé/Citation: Implements reforms to the occupational health and safety provisions of Part II of the Canada Labour Code. Key components include creation of an internal resolution process to assist parties in the work place in resolving problems in a more independent and timely manner; enhancement of the powers of the work place health and safety committee to allow them to identify and resolve problems as they arise, without requiring previous government intervention; creation of corporate policy health and safety committees for employers with more than three hundred employees; requirement for employers to establish and maintain a prevention program specific to occupational health and safety; enhancement of the powers of federal enforcement officers to improve their efficiency and effectiveness; streamlining of the appeal process for the review of directions and decisions of federal enforcement officers; and updating of fines and terminology to reflect current practices in other Canadian jurisdictions.
