Oct. 1: No OHS Coverage for Family Farm Workers Planned


During a radio interview, Premier Jim Prentice said he wasn’t considering imposing OHS regulations on family farms, noting that it may be appropriate for workers in large, more corporate-type farming operations. Prentice also said that he wants more research and debate on the issue before taking action. Some farm groups have demanded that Alberta follow the rest of Canada and lift OHS exemptions on farm workers.
