Modernized Rules Increase Farm Worker Protection
Monday, July 23, 2018
New rules to improve health and safety for farm and ranch workers have been finalized through strong collaboration between the agricultural sector and the Alberta government.
On December 1, 2018, waged, non-family farm and ranch workers will have similar rights and protections as other workers across Canada. These new changes address workplace hazards, safety training and maintenance of equipment.
Information on the changes is available at Alberta.ca. For new updates, please sign up for AgSafe’s newsletter.
