Hazard Assessment

Hazard identification and assessment is a fundamental component of ensuring a safe and healthy workplace.

The Alberta OHS Code sets out requirements for hazard assessment, elimination and control.  Identification of existing and potential hazards at a worksite must be completed before work begins at the worksite or prior to the construction of a new worksite.
