Over the past several years Occupational Health and Safety Officers have been increasing worksite inspections. If your company is unfortunate enough to have received an order by an Officer it is very important that you comply with the order as soon as possible.

Companies that fail to comply with an order may be subject to a fine of $500,000 and/or six months in jail. This is enough of a fine to get anyone’s attention, in fact this is enough of a fine to put most companies out of business.

One of the best ways for a company to avoid prosecution is to show that you have demonstrated your “Due Diligence”. Defendants may be found not guilty if they can prove that due diligence was exercised.

Definition of Due Diligence

Employers shall, as far as it is reasonably practical for the employer to do so, take all reasonable precautions, under the particular circumstances, to prevent injuries or accidents in the workplace.

If your company has received an order it is very important that you act on it as quickly as possible. Safety In A Box ® has been developed so that all you have to do is open the box and start using it. The booklets, forms and cards are field ready, you can start using them immediately.

Trying to develop these forms yourself can be very challenging and costly. Using Safety In A Box ® will save you time and money. Using the Safety In A Box ® program provides construction related companies an easy way to promote safety and stay in compliance with the OHS record keeping and identification requirements.

If you or your company is unfortunate enough to have received an order by an Officer from Occupational Health and Safety and it results in a fine, the government has developed some creative ways to implement those fines. Not only does the fine result in a payment to the government but several safety organizations and other relevant organizations may benefit as well. Excerpts from the article below published in 2008, shares some of the recipients of those benefits.

Alberta courts send a message while safety organizations benefit

Fines levied for contraventions of Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act reached their highest total ever in 2007, reflecting a growing intolerance of unsafe workplace practices.

Twelve companies were fined a total of $1,720,000 in penalties, which topples the 2006 tally of $1,534,500. Of these penalties, $780,000 was ordered by the court to be paid to health and safety organizations as part of creative sentencing orders.

Recipients of these funds included STARS, Foothills Hospital Burn Unit, Canadian Home Builders’ Association, Threads of Life, Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Manufacturers’ Health and Safety Association, and St. John Ambulance.

“I’m pleased the courts continue to send strong, clear messages that workplace health and safety must be taken seriously,” said Iris Evans, Minister of Employment, Immigration and Industry. “Government, industry and labour must also continue to send their own clear messages that workplace health and safety is a priority and that senseless, preventable incidents simply won’t be tolerated.”

The Manufacturers’ Health and Safety Association was awarded $195,000 resulting from a 2003 incident at Westcon Precast in Calgary, and STARS Air Ambulance was awarded a total of $190,000 resulting from two incidents near Hinton and Edson in 2003.

The maximum penalty for a first offence under the OHS Act is $500,000 and/or six months in prison for each charge.
