Occupational health and safety legislation regulates the standards of workplace health and safety with the aim to prevent workplace accidents, injuries and diseases, and outlines consequences for breaches of those standards. It details responsibilities of employers, supervisors and employees. The CCHRSC’s HR Toolkit has a wealth of information on employment standards as well as health and safety legislation.
