Employer OHS safety data now available online

The Government of Alberta has improved its employer records website, making it easier for Albertans to find the safety information they need. OHS employer data is now available online. First launched in 2010, the site now allows users to search and sort 155,000 employers by their lost-time claims, disabling injury rates and location. Along with the inclusion of 2012 data - the latest available – earlier data will also be sortable, back to 2008.
“Albertans can use this information to make decisions on where they choose to work, a reminder to all employers that it is in their best interest to keep workers healthy and safe. I’m proud of this significant step. Quite simply, it’s the right thing to do.” - Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister, Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour
“Providing more data is part of government’s ongoing commitment to achieve greater transparency and accountability across all sectors, including occupational health and safety. Albertans are asking for this information, and we’re delivering.” - Don Scott, Associate Minister, Accountability, Transparency and Transformation

Employer Records now offers data on all Alberta companies with Workers’ Compensation Board accounts, including:
  • number of lost-time claims (LTC);
  • number of workers;
  • disabling injury rate (DIR);
  • number of fatalities; 
  • whether the employer holds a Certificate of Recognition; and
  • industry and province-wide LTC and DIR for comparison.

2013 data will be added to the employer records website this fall.
