New Alberta OHS Act and the Effect on Assessments Specific to this Jurisdiction

A revised Occupational Health and Safety Act received Royal Assent on December 15, 2017, in preparation for the new Act that came into force on June 1, 2018 in Alberta, Canada.

In order to ensure that utilizing organizations and their personnel’s competency is more accurately reflected with this change in regulatory information, current scores have been degraded to mirror the effect of these changes on one’s competency. As competency is not static but rather changeable based on factors such as regulatory changes or the passage of time, the I-CAB Foundation will be degrading competency areas within the Alberta, Canada jurisdiction that have been affected by the Alberta OHS Act revision.

The degradation will be visible on both individual report metrics, as well as cumulative. A degradation in score is denoted by the orange circle and apparent across all individual reports, as well as the Workforce Competency and Cumulative Report.

 

The amount of the degradation is specifically proportional to the effect of the legislative changes on the existing assessment questions and scope. Additionally, new content within the Act has also been covered and echoed in the addition of new assessment questions relating to that content.
