Section 14 Protection of workers on a project

(1) When a person has begun or is about to begin a project and a Director of Inspection or a Director of Occupational Hygiene is of the opinion that the health and safety of any worker who is or will be present at the project is not being or will not be protected, a Director may in writing order that person to stop that project or to refrain from beginning that project, as the case may be.

(2) A Director of Inspection or a Director of Occupational Hygiene shall not rescind an order made under subsection (1) until the Director is satisfied that the person to whom the order was made has taken the measures that, in the opinion of a Director, will protect the health and safety of the workers concerned.

(3) A Director of Inspection or a Director of Occupational Hygiene may require any person who has begun or is about to begin a project to furnish to a Director, within the time specified by a Director, the plans, drawings and specifications that are reasonably necessary for determining whether the health and safety of the workers concerned is being or will be protected.
