     (3)  For the purposes of subsection (2)(b), "effective means of
communication" means radio, telephone or other electronic communication
device.

     (4)  Notwithstanding subsection (2)(b), if an effective means of
communication is not practicable or readily available at the work site, the
employer shall

               (a)  visit the worker, or

               (b)  ensure the worker contacts the employer

     at intervals of time appropriate to the nature of the hazards
associated with the worker's work.

     (5)  In addition to conducting a hazard assessment under subsection
(2)(a), the employer shall conduct further hazard assessments at intervals
of time appropriate to the conditions and circumstances of the worker's
work.

     (6)  The employer shall take all reasonable steps

               (a)  to eliminate any hazard identified during a hazard

               (b)  to control any hazard identified during a hazard
assessment if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate the hazard.

     (7)  If practicable, the employer shall have the workers affected by
a hazard assessment participate

identified during the hazard assessment.

all workers affected by the assessment.


3   If a worker is required to work alone immediately before this
Regulation comes into force, the employer shall conduct a hazard assessment
under section 14.1(2) of the General Safety Regulation (AR 448/83) within
90 days of the coming into force of this Regulation and shall conduct
further hazard assessments after that date in accordance with section
14.1(5) of the General Safety Regulation (AR 448/83).
