POA Decision – 2001/03/02-01 – Consolidation of IH&S Policies in the Prevention Manual
The Panel of Administrators approved the consolidation of a number of policies relating to the former Industrial Health and Safety Regulations from the Prevention Division Policy and Procedure Manual into the Prevention Manual. The effective date for the consolidated policies is April 1, 2001. On that date, the Prevention Manual policies set out in Appendix "A" to the attached resolution became "published policy" and the Policy and Procedure Manual policies listed in Appendix "B" to the resolution ceased to be policy. The consolidated policies appear in the new Manual format. They continue the substantive requirements of the Policy and Procedure Manual policies as those requirements existed prior to April 1, 2001, with any necessary wording changes to reflect legislative and regulatory changes since the Policy and Procedure Manual policies were issued. The consolidation of these policies and the retirement of the corresponding Policy and Procedure Manual policies are part of a larger project that will eventually result in all prevention policies being consolidated into the new Prevention Manual and/or retired as appropriate.
