Guidelines for safety at work, employment law and the human factor

Businesses are reopening, people are going back to work, the “new normal” is about to establish itself.
And still, there are so many questions unanswered with regards to the new work environment that it is necessary to spotlight some information about work safety, employment law and people engagement as different but dependent components for business owners and leaders.

Thanks to the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and Okanagan Young Professionals to put together such a valuable source of knowledge for the entire Okanagan Business world, a webinar followed by an extensive Q&A session for clarifications and explorations.

The first part from Kira Berntson, Manager of Prevention Field Services at WorksafeBC, gave some important insights into updates with regards to how to keep people safe at work, but as well, the requirements for operating in a safe home office.
Additionally, you can find industry-specific guidelines and templates on Worksafe BC’s website.

Mark Grabas, Employment Labour Lawyer from Pushor Mitchell Lawyers explained why lay-offs have to be handled carefully as there are specific requirements for recalls and terminations.

I jumped in with why connection, communication and commitment are the most important currency of the new work engagement as it all comes down to accountability and trustworthy relationships within the entire workforce to generate success for all parties.

Here you can find business-specific guidelines, legal information, statistics and general contacts for all your questions around your industry and business.
