Who's responsible for OHS?

Posted On

Occupational Health and Safety legislation clearly states the responsibilities that the "employer" has for workers, visitors and contractors in their workplace. Do you have a solid understanding of... 

  • due diligence, and what you need to do to support it?
  • who is responsible for contractor safety management?
  • what to report to the WCB and what to report to Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)?
  • the powers of an OHS officer?
  • what supervisors are responsible for?
  • the importance of verifying worker competency?

To help clarify these and other issues, the AHSA has launched Health and Safety Training for Managers, a one-day session designed to identify the responsibilities of senior managers, supervisors and workers.   For more information, and to register click here.
