After a brief delay, Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety Code ("OHS Code") has been updated in accordance with its mandate to be reviewed and updated every two years. The OHS Code was last revised in 2006. There are a number of changes to the OHS Code which employers should become familiar with. Employers have until July 1, 2009 to phase in the improved worksite safety rules.
