Work Right

Image of Work Right logoThe Work Right campaign was the first-ever joint awareness effort involving Occupational Health and Safety and Employment Standards. Its focus was to use gentle, non-judgmental humour to encourage Albertans to think about what they knew about workplace legislation, and to encourage them to find out more. The goal was to promote safe, fair and healthy workplaces by encouraging a willing culture of compliance by both employers and workers.

An interactive web page was developed offering users many opportunities to test their knowledge and seek further information.
