Consultations on Amendments to the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations
Current status: closed
This consultation is now closed
The consultation on amendments to the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations took place from March 18 to April 17, 2017. We would like to thank everyone who gave us their comments during this consultation.
Amendments are being proposed to Part XII: Safety Materials, Equipment Devices and Clothing of the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations to address outdated health and safety standards, the need to modernize the fall-protection system and training requirements, misalignment of requirements with those under other parts of the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, the Canada Labour Code, and provincial law, and a lack of clarity in the regulatory text.
Stakeholders have the opportunity to submit comments during the pre-publication of the proposed amendments in Part I of the Canada Gazette, from March 18 to April 17, 2017.
The Labour Program is holding a consultation on the proposed amendments in Part I of the Canada Gazette.
