What is an OH&S regulation variance?
In work and life, there are often exceptions to rules. A variance addresses that reality and offers employers a way to maintain worker health and safety even when YWCHSB regulations seem at odds with how a workplace operates.
The key point to any regulation variance is that it must ensure an equivalent or greater degree of safety to workers than that identified in the regulations.
