Occupational Health & Safety

      View Printable Page

Amendments to the Criminal Code have expanded the scope of corporate and individual criminal liability for workplace accidents. The new Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Code further complicates the situation.

Companies and executives in high-risk industries - construction, manufacturing, petroleum, mining, forestry, or any business at risk of workplace accidents - must protect themselves against accidents and their costly and time-consuming repercussions.
