Occupational Health and Safety - Leduc

Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) legislation in Alberta was recently overhauled to bring it up to speed with the rest of Canada, setting new standards that all employers – including those in the non-profit sector – must comply with.  

Did you know, for example, that the OHS Act's definition of workers includes volunteers?

Compliance can often feel overwhelming, but IntegralOrg is here to help get you on your way to OHS compliance and a safer workplace. Join us for this workshop, which provides an overview of the recent legislation changes, an intro to our online toolkit, and help with getting your organization on the right track for all your OHS processes and policies.
