THIS OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROGRAM MANUAL IS COMPLIANT WITH ALBERTA’S BILL 30, WHICH CAME INTO EFFECT JUNE 1, 2018.
The Policies and Procedures contained therein, address all recent changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
The OHS Act requires the program to include certain elements and the program must be reviewed and updated at least every three years. The required elements are:
- a health and safety policy;
- hazard assessment and control;
- an emergency response plan;
- a statement of OHS responsibilities of the employer, supervisors and workers at the work site;
- a schedule and procedures for inspection of the work site;
- procedures for when another employer or self-employed person is working at the work site;
- health and safety orientation and training for workers and supervisors;
- procedures for investigating incidents, injuries and refusals to work;
- procedures for worker participation in work site health and safety, including inspections and investigation of incidents, injuries and refusals to work;
- procedures for reviewing and revising the health and safety program; and
- any other elements required by the regulations.
We will develop a manual that will include all of the above requirements, plus any other policies and/or procedures required by your operation. Example: Lockout, Hot Work, WHMIS, Working Alone, Dealing with an Outside Contractor, Ladder Safety, Working at Heights, etc.
Upon payment, you will be directed to our Customizing Questionnaire. It will be used by our staff to customize the manual specifically to your operation.
THIS IS NOT A GENERIC MANUAL
The Purchase of your Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Program Policy and Procedure Manual includes the following:
- Fully Customized Manual (See Index Folder for Contents);
- An Overview of the Occupational Health and Safety Act of Alberta; its Regulations and OHS Code
- Guidelines for the Structure and Function of the Joint Work Site Health and Safety Committee (you are required to establish one of your organization has 20 or more employees). The development questionnaire will provide you with all necessary information.
- Guidelines for the Function, Roles and responsibilities of the Worker Safety Representative (you are not required to establish a Joint Work Site Health and Safety Committee if your organization has less than 20 employees, but you will need a Worker Safety Representative if you have more than 5 employees).
- Automatic updates/revisions for the next 12 months (In the event new legislation is introduced, which alters the policies/procedures included with your Safety Manual);
- Ongoing Support from our Staff to Assist you in the Preparation and Maintenance of your Manual.
Please Note: The Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Program Policy and Procedure Manual, as described above, is intended to ensure your organization’s compliance with Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, its Regulations and Safety Code. In addition to the policies and procedures required by the Act, the Regulations and the Code, that are applicable to your operation, it also includes all ten required program elements. We guarantee your legal compliance.
In the event you require a Policy and Procedure Manual to obtain a COR or meet the requirements of a Supplier Verification Service, or the specific requirements of your client, you may require additional policies and procedures. These additional policies and procedures will not represent a legal requirement. As with COR audits, Supplier Verification Services or individual client requirements, they seek additional details, in order to be sure they have covered all the bases, according to their internal standards. The requirements may differ from one company to the other. These extra policies and procedures can be made available at an additional cost. The cost will be directly related to the complexity and content of the required specific policy or procedure. On average, the extra cost will range from a minimum of $5 to a maximum of $25 per document. In these cases, we ask that you provide us with a copy of the Audit and we will in turn provide you with a cost estimate.
If you would like to pay by Cheque, Interac Email Money Transfer or any another method, please email [email protected] your order details.
