Occupational Health and Safety

General Information

The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that where a serious injury or serious accident takes place at any worksite, the employer or person responsible for that workplace will immediately, or as soon as reasonably practicable, notify a safety officer or an officer's office of the injury or accident.

At an accident scene, no person may, except for the purpose of saving life or relieving suffering and protecting property which is endangered as a result of the accident, interfere with anything connected to the accident until a safety officer or Royal Canadian Mounted Police member has completed an investigation into the accident or authorizes interference with the accident scene.
