Agenda: Partnerships In Injury Reduction is a great example of how government, labor and industry can work together to improve occupational health and safety for Albertans. We are a non-regulatory, province wide prevention program sponsored co-operatively by government, labor, and industry. Together we encourage and assist employers with the implementation of health and safety management systems at their work sites. Partnerships use a strategic approach to program development in an effort to meet the emerging needs of industry and government. Through this process, and consultation with stakeholders, feedback has been provided toward program direction. This session will provide an update of current and new initiatives.
