Bill 47 amends the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Radiation Protection Act and the Workers’ Compensation Act to simplify language and remove unnecessary barriers for job creators without making substantive changes to workers’ rights and protections. Bill 47 brings balance to workplaces and helps ensure workers can rely on a sustainable compensation system if they get ill or injured on the job. Reducing red tape supports Alberta’s economic recovery by helping attract new investment opportunities and getting people back to work.
Note: This Bill 47 update is Part 2 of a 2-Part Series. Part 2 focuses on the changes to the Workers’ Compensation Act.
