Bill 30 Changes

Bill 30, An Act to Protect the Health and Well-being of Working Albertans, brings significant changes to Alberta OHS. 

Purpose: Bill 30 is meant to improve workplace health and safety and provide fair compensation and meaningful support to injured workers and their families. The changes would also ensure Alberta workers have the same rights and protections as other Canadians.

When: New OHS Act comes into effect June 1, 2018. WCB Act changes are effective January 1, 2018, while others will become effective at different times in 2018.

CCSA Health and Safety Program Review

The CCSA is committed to helping organizations meet legislation and improve health and safety for all workers.  We are currently scheduling Health and Safety Program reviews for both members and non-members. 

The CCSA Health and Safety Program review is meant to help you identify areas for improvement in your organization’s overall health and safety program and discover any gaps that may exist that could hinder compliance with OHS legislation; both existing and new legislation brought about by Bill 30.

The review is generally a 2-day process preceded by an online organizational self-assessment. One of our safety consultants will visit your organization to review key documentation, perform informal interviews with staff and have discussions with your leadership team.  A CCSA consultant will then schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss findings from both the self-assessment tool and the on-site review with the goal of identifying opportunities to improve your health and safety program and stay compliant with OHS legislation.

To request a Health and Safety Program review, please complete the CCSA Health and Safety Program Review Request Form. Upon receipt of your completed form, you will be contacted by CCSA staff to discuss dates and costs for the tailored review.
