Yellowhead County has an Employee Health and Safety Policy. Overall, the Policy indicates that the County is committed to a strong safety program that protects its staff, its property and the public from accidents.
However, in order for the program to succeed it requires Managers, Supervisors, Workers and contractors to all be responsible and accountable for the overall safety initiatives.
Complete and active participation by everyone, everyday, in every job is necessary for the safety excellence the County expects. An injury and accident free workplace is our goal. In order to meet this goal Yellowhead County is committed to meeting or exceeding the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulation & Code.
The contractor safety packages can be picked up at the Yellowhead County Edson and Wildwood office available in both hard copy or CD, but please call ahead to confirm CD availability.
