DID YOU KNOW?
As of December 2002, all employers in the roofing industry must comply with the fall protection provisions in Part 38 of the OHS Code. In April 2007 there was a six month transition period to October 2007 that followed the expiration of the OHS Code's Part 38, (Residential Roofing). This provided roofing industry employers the opportunity to incorporate traditional fall-protection options into their operations.
Keeping with government's priority of providing safe and secure communities, Alberta Employment and Immigration is committed to enhancing workplace safety. Bringing roofers under the same fall protection requirements as other industries is another step towards making Alberta's workplaces safer.
