Kalen Ingram recently played the role of Ministry of Labour prosecutor in a mock trial as part of Kingston’s Safety Days event. The annual Safety Days event is jointly hosted by the City and Utilities Kingston to promote best safety practices amongst employees – and local contractors and suppliers in the industry. The event provides training and information sessions that are all about how to instill safety as the highest value in the workplace. The mock trial was aimed at demonstrating the ramifications of being an employer or supervisor charged by the Ministry of Labour and how to demonstrate a due diligence defence. Our Labour & Employment group represents employers and contractors from across Ontario and provides advice in meeting Occupational Health and Safety standards and in responding to Ministry of Labour charges.
