“Where can I find information about staying safe at work?”


You need the right training and tools to keep yourself safe on the job. Your employer is responsible for providing this. You are responsible for knowing the rules and following them. The Alberta government’s Guide to OHS: Workers can help you get started.

For detailed information on safety-related rules, rights, and responsibilities for workers and young workers, check out the Occupational Health and Safety Resource Portal.

For information about safety in your particular workplace, your employer is the best source. Employers will have policies, plans, and training related to emergency response, evacuation procedures, fire drills and fire extinguishers, first aid, muster points, and safety equipment. They will train you and provide information on workplace hazards, handling toxic chemicals, and other health and safety issues that relate to your job. They will also have policies and procedures in place to protect you and your co-workers from workplace violence or harassment.

Never hesitate to speak up about health and safety at work. Your employer will hold regular health and safety meetings where you can ask questions, seek out information, or raise concerns. You can also can talk to your supervisor or your workplace health and safety committee or health and safety representative.
