CANADA LABOUR CODE – PART II
All Federal workplaces in Canada fall under Federal health and safety legislation known as The Canada Labour Code – Part II. This includes federally-regulated businesses and organizations such as the Federal government, some crown corporations, communications businesses including telephone companies, as well as banks and interprovincial transportation companies such as trucking, railways, and airlines.
The purpose of The Canada Labour Code – Part II, commonly referred to as “The Code”, is to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of, linked with, or occurring in “the course of employment.”
All federal employers governed by The Code have many legislated duties. The Code outlines all the responsibilities of the workplace parties to help ensure a safe workplace. Therefore workplace parties such as the employer, the employee and workplace committees must be familiar with their prospective responsibilities under The Code.
