On December 2, 2015, Élodie Brunet, an associate in the Labour and Employment Law Group at Lavery, will give the opening presentation of “La Tournée Pensons Prévention”, organized by SPI Santé Sécurité on the South Shore of Montreal. This event, which is free of charge, is addressed to all those who value occupational health and safety in their workplace, namely managers and business executives.
Ms. Brunet’s presentation entitled “Le succès d’une défense de diligence raisonnable passe inévitablement par la prévention” (“A successful due diligence defence necessarily begins with prevention”) seeks to:
- raise awareness regarding the practical elements an employer must implement in order to deal with a CSST inspection, a statement of offence alleging a violation of the Act Respecting Occupational Health and Safety or a charge of criminal negligence;
- discuss certain practical elements of a due diligence defence, which essentially consists in taking the necessary measures to protect the health and safety of the various stakeholders.
This event will take place at 8 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Montreal-Longueuil, on 900, St-Charles East Street, in Longueuil. Other topics relating to occupational health and safety will be discussed throughout the day, namely during an Experience Sharing Panel, a conference on enclosed spaces and assessment workshops (protection against falls or lockouts).
