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 legislation came into effect June 1, 2018

CCSA Health and Safety Program Review (HSPR)

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.

 

What are others saying?

Participating in the Health and Safety Program Review has been a great asset to our organization. The feedback we received was clearly laid out and user friendly, presenting evidence and colour coding each section for ease of use.

During the assessment days, staff were very professional and worked with us to obtain the information they needed.

Overall ,the [HSPR] experience has been very beneficial and positive for us at Sherwood Care. It will enable us to be well equipped for our upcoming PIR audit, as well as maintain a high standard of safety for our staff, volunteers, residents, and anyone else who may enter our building! - Clinical Nurse Educator, Sherwood Care
