Description:

Health and safety lawyers Ryan Conlin and Frank Portman will dissect the various proceedings which have flowed from the Metron saga.  Five different prosecutions, against five very different individuals and corporations, have now concluded, and have resulted in a significant ripple effect through health and safety law.  Among other topics, this webinar will cover:

  • The guidance the courts have given regarding health and safety prosecutions under the Criminal Code;
  • The liability for suppliers and engineers involved in workplaces that suffer accidents;
  • Where the Metron decisions fall in the trend towards criminalizing workplace health and safety; and
  • The consequences for the prosecution and defence in serious workplace safety accidents.

We hope you will join us!
