Canada’s Safest Employers Award 2017

Thomson Reuters Canada Limited

The number of potential health and safety risks in any health-care organization is astounding. Not only do you need to worry about slips and trips, musculoskeletal disorders and chemical handling, but biological agents can be found around every corner. And of course there is always the pressure of keeping patients safe, too.

If your health-care organization truly knows only healthy and safe workers can ensure their patients are healthy and safe, we want to hear from you for the Canada's Safest Employers' Health Care Safety award.

Click here to nominate your company for the Health Care award as part of Canada’s Safest Employers awards. Nominations close June 1.

Public input sought on Alberta’s workplace laws

March 13, 2017
Alberta Government

Albertans are invited to participate in a review of the province’s labour legislation to ensure fair and family-friendly workplaces that support a strong economy.

The review focuses on the Employment Standards Code and the Labour Relations Code, neither of which has undergone significant updates since 1988.

These laws cover topics such as hours of work, overtime, general holidays, special leaves and collective bargaining rules. Some of Alberta’s workplace rules are currently out-of-step with the rest of Canada and these areas need to be reviewed.


WCB PIR Update

March 7, 2017


WCB Alberta has announced that there will be no luncheon for PIR recipients this year. 

Instead they will be using other means to highlight the success of employers in the province who've demonstrated  commitment to safety and disability management through the PIR program.

They are in the process of developing plans right now.  We will keep you updated when we know more.
