The Collision Between Federal and Provincial Occupational Health and Safety Regimes on Energy and Resource Projects
AbstractBoth federal and provincial occupational health and safety regimes exist in Canada. While these types of laws have similar purposes, there are differences in the standards applied and the consequences imposed. For those projects where both regimes may apply, hidden pitfalls may exist. This article examines the collision of these types of regimes and the constitutional issues that such collisions create, and attempts to clearly delineate under which circumstances each regime will apply.
