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 “regularly employed” workers in total, OR
- designate a Health & Safety Representative if the employer has 5 to 19 “regularly employed” workers in total.
Employers can use an alternate approach to meeting these requirements with approval from an OHS director.
As of December 1, 2021 Every employer in Alberta must ensure ALL their Health & Safety Committee members, including co-chairs/representatives take the MANDATORY Joint Work Site H&S Committee/H&S Representative Training. This training no longer needs to be taken through an approved training provider.
Under the new changes to OHS legislation, The AHLA will continue to provide a revised yet detailed course on Joint Work Site H&S Committee/H&S Representative Training.
