The Alberta government has streamlined 11 occupational health and safety regulations into a single regulation in an effort to make the rules easier to understand and faster to update.

The updated Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Regulation replaces the administrative and policy provisions of the 11 existing regulations.

The administrative requirements, which include matters such as application for permits and certificates, posting of orders and notices and availability of documents will come into effect on March 31, 2003.
