I've checked with our Provincial & Federal laws and our "Pager Pay"
setup is legal. It should also be noted I'm salaried w/ banked OT and
it's my call what shifts and/or how much extra time I work.

I do keep a log, and get it signed off on by our General Manager. In
our company I am the IT department so ultimately, I have to deal with
the problems anyways. My general rule of thumb is that unless it's a
showstopper, I'll wait till Monday to deal with it, at which point
it's back on the regular clock. And when I do go out of town, my
office just has to grin and bear it till I get back.
