Occupational Health and Safety Council (OHSC)

Occupational Health and Safety Council (OHSC)

What’s New

On December 15, 2017, the OHSC was dissolved and the appointments of members of the council ended.

The new OHS Act creates a new OHS Advisory Council (OHSAC). The change in name reflects its changed mandate. In its advisory role, the OHSAC is to focus on key government and labour policy and legislation priorities by  providing specialized advice to government to better protect working Albertans.


The OHSC may continue to hear appeals of orders issued by Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) that commenced before December 15, 2017. The OHSC may also transfer appeal hearings or reviews to the Alberta Labour Relations Board (ALRB). The ALRB will hear OHS matters that commenced on or after December 15, 2017.
