The review will examine the OHS Act as well as enforcement, education, engagement, prevention efforts and compliance.
The province stated in a news release the review will also “clarify employer and worker responsibilities, improve worker engagement and maintain Alberta’s strong focus on illness and injury prevention.”
“Alberta workplaces and the nature of Albertans’ work have changed significantly during the past 40 years. We need to make sure the province’s laws and best practices are helping keep Albertans safe at work,” Alberta minister of labour Christina Gray said in a statement.
The review will include roundtable sessions with employers, employees, health and safety associations and academia as well as an online survey and written submissions.
