Approved training courses
Workers with jobs in certain areas are required by law to have special health and safety training approved by Alberta Labour.
Alberta Labour works with approved training agencies across the province to deliver courses in these areas:
- Asbestos worker
- Audiometric technician
- Explosive safety worker
- First aid
- Pulmonary function technician
- Emergency mine rescue*
*Emergency mine rescue workers must complete training that is approved by the Alberta government.
No other OHS training courses are required to be approved by the government. Whether your job needs approved training or not, employers must ensure that workers are adequately trained and competent to perform their work.
Permits and certificates
OHS laws also require that workers get permits and certificates before they can do certain jobs. Find out more.
