The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) and the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board (CNSOPB) have finalized the joint Guideline for the Occupational Health And Safety Regulations (OHS Guideline).
Those working in the Canada-Nova Scotia and Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador offshore areas must understand and comply with the full occupational health and safety (OHS) regulatory framework that applies. Regulated entities are responsible to consult the entire OHS regulatory framework, consisting of the OHS provisions of the Accord Acts and the OHS Regulations.
The OHS Guideline is intended to support regulated entities with their understanding of, and compliance with, the new OHS Regulations, and also to emphasize linkages between relevant guidance sections and the OHS provisions of the Accord Acts.
The document has been posted to the CNSOPB’s website at the following link: Guideline for the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations
