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.

And, as a supervisor, you must also be competent. This is the law.

Here is what that means.

Here are the regulations.

Supervisors are also workers and, through work arrangements, can be considered employers.
