Note explicative (en anglais seulement)

This Bill amends the Occupational Health and Safety Act to

(b) impose a maximum fine of $500,000 in all fatality cases;

(c) provide, where the court orders the repayment of benefits accrued to the offender during the commission of an offence, that these amounts be in addition to the maximum fine levels rather than be included within the maximum fine levels; and

(d) change the title of the Minister and the department to Labour and Advanced Education.
