Bringing together prosecution, defence, witnesses, and others, this mock trial will focus on charges brought upon a fictional employer charged under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The triggering incident is the death of a worker due to a fall.
With falls remaining the number one killer in construction, the idea of this workplace situation will not be foreign to observers. Attendees will become familiar with what happens in a real trial.
The intended outcome is to open the eyes of Employers, Project Managers, Supervisors, Joint Health and Safety Committee Members, Health and Safety Representatives and Workers to what can happen if proper precautions are not taken to keep workers safe.
Doors open at 11:00 am and all proceeds from the event will be donated to Threads of Life.
Representatives from the MOL, IHSA, WSPS and City of Ottawa will be available to answer questions and provide information to assist you and your workers to stay safe, healthy and compliant in your Workplace.
Canteen (cash only) will be open for snacks, light lunch, coffee and refreshments.
