Self managed condo boards and those that choose to use a property management company have responsibilities under the OH&S Act, Regulation and Code. Failure to ensure that these responsibilities are met could result in unnecessary, and easily avoidable, exposure to liabilities for the board as well as for the individual who directs work.
Expected Learning Outcomes:
Insight into the need to understand and adhere to the AB OH&S Act, Regulation and Code for self managed boards or make sure that the property management company assumes prime contractor responsibilities (in writing) and only hires reputable sub trades that have adequate WCB coverage and insurance. Gain an understanding of the potential fines and jail time associated with non compliance for self managed boards or for boards where the property management company hasn't assumed prime contractor responsibilities. Gain a basic understanding of some of the more common code requirements. Learn why WCB coverage is a good idea for self managed boards and where to go for assistance or more information.
