How can we help?
Alberta Occupational Health and Safety helps prevent worker injuries and illnesses by providing measures and information for taking action.
Call in an incident or injury or get more information
The OHS Contact Centre is open 24 hours a day for Albertans to report incidents or get information on health and safety in the workplace.
1-866-415-8690 (toll-free in Alberta)
You must call in an injury or incident as soon as possible to OHS if it:
- results in a death
- results in a worker staying in hospital for more than 2 days
- involves an unplanned or uncontrolled explosion, fire or flood that causes or may cause a serious injury
- involves the collapse or upset of a crane, derrick or hoist
- involves the collapse or failure of any component of a building or structure
File a complaint online
Anyone can report unsafe conditions at a workplace. Make a confidential health and safety complaint online. You can also call it in directly to OHS Contact Centre.
Refuse work – imminent danger
You must refuse and report work that might put you or other workers into imminent danger.
Report unsafe work
If you think an unsafe condition exists, but you are not in imminent danger, you must report the work to your employer to determine the next steps.
Appeal an OHS action
If OHS has issued you an order, suspension, cancellation, administrative penalty, ruling or disciplinary action, you can appeal the matter before the OHS Council.
