A quick 1-2 on The Act (OHSA) VS Regulations (213/91)


Remember you are looking in the Act for items that are common for all employers regardless of type of workplace. Example, H&S representatives, MOL entry rights, Violence and Harassment & Fines.


You should be looking in the regulations when it is a construction specific issue. Example, Scissor lifts, construction ladders, exavations, PPE, all construction specific issues.


The Act is the Law and the reg's are the sector specific rules.


Hopefully this helps you navigate the OHSA and construction regs a bit better  -  Lou
