The course helps you unravel the confusion by identifying key pieces of federal and provincial legislation, such as the Workers Compensation Act and Bill C-45. The course also examines the role of important safety organizations, such as WorkSafeBC, the BC Safety Authority, and the Employers' Advisers Office.
