Join fellow safety professionals for a lunch and learn with Cristina Wendel, Partner at Dentons, to familiarize yourself with the changes in Bill 30.
On November 27, 2017, the Government of Alberta introduced numerous proposed changes to Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act and Workers’ Compensation Act. The proposed changes are contained in Bill 30: An Act to Protect the Health and Well-being of Working Albertans.
If passed, the majority of the amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act would come into force on June 1, 2018. Some of the amendments to the Workers’ Compensation Act would come into force on January 1, 2018, with others coming into force throughout 2018, in April, September and December.
Speaker: Cristina Wendel, Partner at Dentons
