Whether you are dealing with an initial order for compliance, considering an appeal, or need help with an investigation or prosecution, you can count on his experience to provide you with highly effective counsel on workplace safety law and OHSA regulations in Ontario.
Provincial and federal inspectors have a reputation for the aggressive enforcement of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Part II of the Canada Labour Code. Inspections, orders and prosecutions are frequent, with ever-increasing fines when the latter result in convictions. OHSA compliance risks have been compounded by the introduction of the workplace duty of care into the Criminal Code, making it even more important to have a seasoned advocate on your side.
As an experienced workplace safety and OHSA lawyer, Bruce has assisted numerous employers with Canada and Ontario workplace safety law compliance in a variety of business sectors, including; construction, transportation, retail, manufacturing, and mining.
He advises clients on inspections, orders and related appeals. When an inspection leads to an investigation, he advises the organization and its leadership on their rights and obligations. Bruce has a well-earned reputation as an effective advocate when a prosecution ensues.
