What are supervisors responsible for?
Supervisors are responsible for making sure workers are performing their duties properly and safely.
You must ensure all workers:
are instructed how to do jobs safely;
perform their jobs and use equipment safely;
are informed about workplace danger; and
are removed if they are intoxicated or impaired.
It is important to remember that, in addition to all their supervisor duties, a supervisor is also a worker, and carries all those duties and responsibilities as well. You can find them here.
If there is a serious injury or illness, you must report it immediately.
The Employer’s Report Of Injury/Illness is here.
If there has been a workplace incident, you must record it, regardless of the severity.
