Your OHS Program on the “Hot Seat”: Mock Trial and Discussion

431 431 people viewed this event.

As OHS practitioners, people rely on you to ensure workplace health and safety and regulatory compliance.  Unfortunately, a worker was just critically injured when a component fell off a mobile crane that recently came back from its annual maintenance inspection.  It seems the workers who stowed the component failed to properly align the holes for the stowage pins after the inspection, so it wasn’t secured, and the injured worker may have failed to properly inspect those points during his pre-lift walk-around. Now the Ministry of Labour has charged the maintenance manager and the company for failing to take all reasonable precautions – alleging that the maintenance workers and injured worker weren’t properly trained, and that they failed to follow the stowage procedure in the manufacturer’s manual.  How did that happen?

Learn from Seasoned OHS Defence Attorneys:

  • What it’s like to be on the hot seat in an OHS prosecution and what kinds of evidence your counsel will need for your defence,
  • How to identify and proactively address OHS shortcomings in training and manufacturers’ manuals – before you find yourself on the witness stand, and
  • OHS best practices for general and task-specific training and procedures.

Please join Ryan Conlin and Jeremy Schwartz as we present this program for the Central Ontario Safety Network.

We hope to see you there!
