The Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulations and Code establishes the basic health and safety responsibilities of Alberta employers and workers. Everyone in the workplace must be aware of their legal responsibilities in order to avoid fines, penalties, and prosecution. More importantly, this legislation establishes the basic guidelines needed to better ensure a healthy and safe work environment for all Alberta workers.
The AHSA’s OHS Compliance Self-Audit takes employers through the process of exploring their level of compliance with the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Code. Results are confidential, and intended to identify areas where deficiencies may be identified. The self-audit report may also be required to achieve eligibility for the Alberta Hotel & Lodging Association’s Employer of Choice award.
An effective Occupational Health & Safety Management System will encompass the eight elements required to ensure the health and safety of all employees. Whether or not you are pursuing or maintaining a Certificate of Recognition (COR), a health and safety audit should be undertaken at least annually to identify any gaps that may indicate system breakdowns. This online self-audit will take you through a high-level review of your OHS system, and may also be used as a baseline audit for those employers preparing for their first COR-certification audit.
To access one or both of these self-audits, AHSA Members should sign in to their account, and select My Self Audits from the Navigation menu.
