Stiff fines for workers and employers caught violating workplace safety codes is the new reality under historic changes to Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act legislation. Avoid on-site fines under Alberta’s new OH&S Ticketing and Administrative Penalties System with the HANDI-GUIDE to Alberta’s OH&S Act, Regulation and Code – 2014 Edition.

New in This Edition
  • As of October 1, 2013, OHS officials can issue administrative penalties for OHS violations, up to a maximum of $10,000 per contravention per day
  • As of January 1, 2014, OHS officials can issue tickets to workers or employers for more than 60 different contraventions. Ticket amounts range from $100 to $500
  • In addition to the administrative penalties amendments, other amendments to the OH&S Act made by Bill 6 (S.A. 2012, c. 7) (in force December 10, 2012)
  • Addition of Administrative Penalty (Occupational Health and Safety Act) Regulation, AR 165/2013 (in force October 1, 2013)
  • Amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation made by AR 182/13 (in force October 1, 2013)

This practical guide includes the current version of the act and regulation as well as the Occupational Health and Safety Code plus 5 interpretative chapters that will help you understand and interpret the law. Also includes a handy chart listing all the new oh&s ticketable contraventions.

A powerful safety tool for worker training, and for increasing worker and supervisor awareness of their responsibilities under workplace safety law.

Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety Code, Part 1, Section 2.1 states: " Availability of legislation 2.1 An employer must ensure that a current paper or electronic copy of each of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation and the Occupational Health and Safety Code is readily available for reference by workers."

Alberta Employment and Immigration, responsible for administering the OHS Act, has advised that they recognize the acceptability of the official published versions from Alberta's Queen's Printer, as well as copies as published by Carswell in the Handi-Guide.
