More needs to be done on workplace safety, Alberta auditor general says Posted: Jul 05, 2016 11:39 AM MT Last Updated: Jul 05, 2016 4:53 PM MT Alberta Auditor General Merwan Saher issued his July 2016 report on Tuesday. (CBC ) Auditor General of Alberta July 2016 report (Note: CBC does not endorse and is not responsible for the content of external links.) The Alberta government has improved how it enforces workplace safety, but it hasn't done enough to ensure employers follow the rules, Auditor General Merwan Saher found in his latest report "The (Labour) department has still not fully implemented process improvements to enforce compliance for all (Occupational Health and Safety) orders issued," states the July 2016 report, released Tuesday. "The department is unable to demonstrate, with evidence, that it has a complete set of processes to apply department policies to keep Alberta's workers safe." Alberta auditor general issues scathing report on body transportation contract Although the labour department has started issuing fines, tickets and administrative penalties to employers, it doesn't evaluate how well its workplace safety programs prevent injury and lost time, the auditors found. Problems remain with how Occupational Health and Safety documents its attempts to get employers to follow the rules. Employers are given 30 days to fix work-site safety problems. OHS officers can only grant a 30-day extension with the approval of a manager. Although his auditors found "significant cases of invalid extensions," Saher declined to say how long these stop-work orders were extended beyond the 60-day maximum. "You will have to accept that in our judgment we saw significant non-compliance with procedures to cause us to make the recommendation," he said. "I'm not going down the path of giving out numbers which can be misconstrued without the full context." A spokesman for Labour Minister Christina Gray said in many of these cases, the companies were granted two 30-day extensions at the most. In cases where the extension went longer, more time was needed because a part for a piece of machinery was on order or an engineering report was required for a structural modification. Even though the auditor general recommended changes in 2010, the report found managerial approvals are still not properly documented. In some cases, the OHS officer, not the manager, would make notes about the approval, leading auditors to question whether it was authentic. The labour department has given up on completing a Work Safety Alberta strategy, the report says. Instead, it will rely on work previously done to come up with something else. But this isn't good enough, the report states.
