Occupational Health & Safety

Across all Canadian jurisdictions, employers are subject to rigorous occupational health and safety (OHS) and workers’ compensation legislation. 

To ensure compliance, avoid costly litigation and proactively manage workplace risks, you need a legal team that offers strategic solutions, extensive OHS litigation experience and broad industry insight.

With one of Canada’s foremost occupational health and safety and workers’ compensation law practices, Gowling WLG provides employers across all industries with comprehensive training, valuable consulting and exceptional legal solutions to manage national and provincial legislative requirements.

We counsel 
employers, senior executives, supervisors, and health and safety committee members on a full range of OHS-related matters, including compliance, due diligence, defence and appeals.
