The Government of Alberta is reviewing the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) system and is looking for feedback from key stakeholders including municipalities.

The review examines the legislation, as well as our compliance, enforcement, education, awareness and prevention efforts. Topics include:

  • clarifying employer and worker responsibilities in legislation;
  • improving worker engagement in OHS;
  • renewed focus on illness and injury prevention.

To guide this review, the Ministry of Labour has assembled a Discussion Paper available here.

There is also an online survey available. To complete the survey, click here.

The AAMDC asks members to share any feedback with us to help formulate our position on this important issue. Please send any input to Policy Analyst Matt Dow at matt.dow@aamdc.com.
