Advantage CPD: R. v. Greater Sudbury (City) – Where Do Construction Companies Go From Here?
December 14, 2023
Virtual Live Webinar
On November 9, 2023, the Supreme Court of Canada issued the long-awaited decision in R. v. Greater Sudbury (City). The outcome of the decision is that site owners will be considered to be “employers” with respect to health and safety obligations on construction projects. As a result, construction companies need to ensure they are adequately protected when entering into contracts for future projects.
In this one-hour Advantage CPD webinar, we will cover:
- the background and case history of R. v. Greater Sudbury
- the relevant provisions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act
- why construction organizations need to be aware of this decision
- what impact the decision could have on how construction organizations conduct business, including issues such as commercial contracts, inspections and reporting obligations
