Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act Changes

Changes to the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act came into effect on June 1, 2018.

These changes enshrine workers three basic rights in the workplace:

  1. Right to Know
  2. Right to Participate
  3. Right to Refuse

The changes also expand on the obligations of work site parties, including employers, workers, supervisors, contractors and others.

See this fact sheet from the Government of Alberta for a summary of these changes.
