The Generals - Fall/Winter 2016 - 24

WARMER, DRYER, AND MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT BASEMENTS Introducing Amdry, the only insulated subfloor panel with integrated moisture resistant film and raised drainage channels. 2/9/15 1:32 PM For more information about the Metron decision 713469_Amvic.indd 1 Thank you to the advertisers who helped make this publication possible. 24 facts submitted to the court during the guilty plea, the Crown agreed that Metron: * required the owner of the apartment buildings to arrange for an engineering inspection and re-certification of the roof anchors to ensure compliance with safety requirements prior to commencing work * was cooperative and complied with all requests made by the Ministry of Labour during periodic inspections of the site between October and December 2009 * arranged for the project manager, site supervisor, and workers to take swing stage and fall arrest courses * the project manager and site supervisor conducted periodic meetings with the workers to review safety requirements, including the use of swing stages * had a comprehensive safety manual and gave a copy to each worker * had its project manager perform weekly inspections and submit written reports to Metron * held periodic meetings with Ministry of Labour inspectors. The Bill C-45 amendments to the Code have meant greater risk of criminal liability for companies and senior executives who fail to take every reasonable precaution to prevent bodily harm at the workplace. Metron is a clear example of how quickly this liability may materialize and how serious the consequences can be for employers. Employers are well advised to take this as a reminder to conduct a thorough review of their health and safety systems to identify and close, in a documented manner, any deficiencies that may expose the organization to liability. Lessons of a good health and safety management system must include a level of compliance and delivery of that management system in the construction project, on a daily basis. ■ View this issue online at www.naylornetwork.com/oga-nxt or for assistance with OHS training or health and safety legal compliance audit, please contact Norm Keith, partner at +1 416 868 7824; at Fasken Martineau, or visit our OHS Preventions Services website, ehslaw.ca.
