“OH&S survey reveals knowledge gaps” by Advocate Daily Advocate Daily interviews Toronto lawyer Norm Keith in an article about the findings of the first occupational health and safety survey report, which suggest the areas that require further review.

 

“It’s the first survey of its kind and establishes a baseline,” says Keith, a partner with Fasken Martineau and an established specialist in employment law and OH&S regulation.

 

Keith tells AdvocateDaily.com the most surprising results came from respondents who didn’t know if the firm updated their OHS policy as required. Some 23 per cent either said no or weren’t sure.

Keith says the looming decriminalization of marijuana is going to be an increasing problem for employers. Some 75 per cent of respondents said their workplace drug and alcohol policy didn’t allow for random testing for those in sensitive safety positions.
