Workplace Safety and the Modern Workforce There is a increasing anxiety in Canada that workplace security does not rendezvous the desires of all workers (Martin 12). Workplaces and employed hours have altered over the years but the directions for who specifies for reimbursement has not. Therefore, numerous persons who get injure or hurt on the job are not amply compensated. A CBC documentary called Out of Sync that aired on Jan 17, 2007 resolved that workplace inspections in Canada are not up to the benchmark essential for a up to date work environment.
