Jun 21, 2019 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Community Credit Union Business Innovation Center, Amherst
Join us for this new CPD Session, which will feature a presentation on the Site Responsibilities of engineers and then a presentation providing an update on recent engineering issues from Nova Scotia and around Canada.
The first presentation will discuss the nuances of 2 recent court cases involving a serious construction accident and the questions that the final verdicts posed with respect to OH&S Act and Regulations compliance. The discussion will center around the engineer’s safety responsibilities when acting on behalf of a client on a project site. Is the engineer always responsible for safety on the site? Some times the law is not at all clear to those involved.
The second session will present information related to a number of recent engineering projects where issues have occurred. The ethical and engineering related challenges of these projects will be discussed, and participants will have the opportunity to discuss these challenges and what could have been done to help alleviate them.
