Bill 30: An Act to Protect the Health & Well-being of Working Albertans
After public consultation and engagement, the Government of Alberta’s Bill 30 is planned to take effect on June 1, 2018. The bill passed second reading in the Alberta Legislature on Monday, December 11 and received Royal Assent on Friday, December 15, 2017.
The Government of Alberta sought public input on several factors related to the OHS system and the WCB, which has resulted in Bill 30. We encourage all safety leaders to familiarize themselves with the changes.
You can find information on the proposed changes at these websites:
- Government of Alberta – OHS & Changes
- Government of Alberta – OHS System Review
- Bill 30 An Act to Protect the Health & Well-being of Working Albertans
The ACSA is reviewing the proposed legislative changes to determine what it means for us and our stakeholders. We will discuss with our stakeholders how we can support them when the changes take effect on June 1, 2018.
The ACSA is supportive of improvements to the OHS system when they help ensure worker safety.
If you are an employer wondering about how Bill 30 affects you and your employees, your ACSA offers a one-day Legislation Awareness course. The course will be revised shortly to include Bill 30.
We will be keeping our stakeholders informed through our social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, this website, and via our monthly newsletter to which you can subscribe here.
Follow your ACSA on your preferred social media platform and receive the latest updates as they happen.
