With the changes introduced by Bill 30 that are required to be implemented by July 1, 2018, many company owners are worried and wondering what this will mean for them in regards to the safety program requirement.
You want to keep your employees safe while on the job, and you believe in following rules and regulations that help you ensure their safety. But have you ever wondered what else you can be doing? Maybe legislation has changed and there are new requirements that you are unaware of. Maybe your scope of work has changed over the years and your program needs to be updated but you’re not sure where to start or what to include. Continuous improvement within your company leads to better bottom lines. This applies to your safety program as well.
