You may be contacted by third party service providers offering Health and Safety Committee/ Representative training.
Be advised that Health and Safety Committee/ Representative training is still under development by the Province and that the Province will be designating certain organizations the ability to deliver the training. If you take training from a third party service provider, that is NOT approved by the province, you will not be in compliance with the requirements under the new OHS legislation.
Do not register or pay money for Health and Safety Committee/ Representative Training unless it has been approved by the Province.
ASHA is working hard at keeping our membership informed. We will let you know when and where Health and Safety Committee / Representative training will be available.
Please stay tuned for additional updates.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act (the act) establishes the minimum standards for healthy and safe workplaces in Alberta. These laws are supported through the internal responsibility system and enforced through compliance activities.
