Roles, rights and responsibilities of workplace parties

Everyone in a workplace has distinct roles and responsibilities for health and safety at their workplace. This includes the employer, supervisor, worker, self-employed person, prime contractor, owner, supplier, and director or officer of a corporation.

Our forthcoming publication Roles and Responsibilities of Workplace Parties Guide describes the roles and responsibilities for each workplace party for workplace health and safety. It answers the questions most commonly asked about the legal roles and responsibilities under the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Act.

The Act establishes the roles and responsibilities of all workplace parties, and these are discussed in the guide. Through co-operation and commitment, each of us can make the Yukon a safer and healthier place to work. Every improvement in workplace health and safety benefits us all.
