Employer Responsibilities

The Workers Compensation Act (WCA) and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation (OHSR) are the main legislative tools that describe requirements for ensuring workplace safety. Summaries below focus on road safety and explain the responsibilities of employers, supervisors and workers, and point to resources they can use to address those responsibilities.

The Employer's Guide to Road Safety Requirements suggests practices that employers can apply to address their obligations for the safety of employees who drive for work purposes. It also cites the applicable part from the WCA or OHSR.
