Bill C-45 – A Powerful Incentive for Robbery Mitigation Training

Many companies take occupational health and safety obligations seriously. In addition to the Canada Labour Code Regulation 19 - Hazard Prevention Program, a 2004 amendment to Bill C-45 redefined corporate responsibility. These changes are expressed in the duty of decision-makers as follows:

“Everyone who undertakes, or has the authority, to direct how another person does work or performs a task is under a legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person arising from that work or task.”*

Disregard of this duty resulting in bodily harm or death can result in a change of criminal negligence.

Cash sensitive businesses operate in an environment where robbery is considered to be a high risk factor for employee workplace health and safety. Acceptable risk mitigation activity includes appropriate robbery response training and is the responsibility of all supervisors.
