The Alberta government has made revisions to Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Code and has invited the public to provide comments on the proposed changes by way of surveys. The deadline for completing the surveys is January 31, 2015.
Some of the proposed changes include requiring employers to develop written policies and procedures to deal with workplace harassment (in addition to workplace violence) and changes to Part 29 – WHMIS to align with the proposed federal legislation.
To review the proposed changes and complete the surveys go to http://work.alberta.ca/occupational-health-safety/ohs-code-public-consultation.html.
