The Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act) defines “constructor” and details the duties of a constructor. Whenever there is a “project”, there is a “constructor.” Who the constructor is at a particular time or particular phase of the project can sometimes be difficult to determine and may change due to the dynamic nature of the work, the numerous parties involved, and the continuous change in the workforce due to the very nature of construction work.

This Guideline provides assistance in answering the following questions:

  • Who is a constructor?
  • Who is an owner?
  • Does every construction project have an owner and a constructor?
  • What are the key duties of a constructor?
  • What is the relationship of the constructor to the other parties on a project?
  • What is the extent of a construction project?
