Joint Work Site Health & Safety Committee/
Health & Safety Representative Training
To meet Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) legislation, an employer must:
- establish a Health & Safety Committee if the employer has 20 or more full or part-time workers in total, OR
- designate a Health & Safety Representative if the employer has 5 to 19 full or part-time workers in total.
Employers can use an alternate approach to meeting these requirements with approval from an OHS director.
Every employer in Alberta must ensure their Health & Safety Committee co-chairs/representatives take the MANDATORY Joint Work Site H&S Committee/H&S Representative Training through a designated training Agency.
The AHLA has been designated to deliver Joint Work Site H&S Committee/H&S Representative Training pursuant to s.29(1) and (2) of the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act.
