Get ready for a new Legislation Awareness course

We have updated our one-day classroom Legislation Awareness course. The improved content and structure creates a greater learning experience for participants.

The new Legislation Awareness course launches on September 1, 2016. This course is for owners, employers, managers, supervisors, and workers who want to increase their knowledge of the Alberta Occupational Health & Safety legislation and its practical application. It is also one of the four required courses for the Certificate of Recognition (COR) Program.

Revisions made include:

  • Updated information on the OHS Act
  • Different types of legislation beyond OHS that may affect a work site
  • Components of the compliance model used by OHS
  • Specifics of the Criminal Code requirements for health and safety

The course format reflects new course design elements that improve the learning experience for participants, who will gain extensive experience searching for applicable OHS legislation. Finally, the course includes an exam to verify understanding.
