Improving Workplaces for New Alberta Workers - Online Survey
New Alberta Workers (NAW) helps new to Alberta workers (immigrants, refugees, and people who come on a temporary work permit - TFWs) to know more about their rights as workers.
We are conducting a survey of the experience of new to Alberta workers in our workplaces.
This will help us create recommendations to improve our program, and inform employers, government, and worker representatives about how we can work together to ensure the health, safety, and fair treatment of ALL workers.
Please fill out our survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZD22KRQ
In Alberta, we have the right to a safe workplace.
Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) law protects most workers in Alberta.
- It does not matter if you have been in Alberta only a short time.
- It does not matter where you are from.
We offer a free course called Health and Safety Rights for Workers.
We also have a Train-the-Trainer program to train workers to teach this course to other workers.
Some workers find it difficult to speak up about workplace health and safety issues. New Alberta Workers provides resources and support so workers can access information and exercise their rights.
If you feel unsafe at work, or have questions about health and safety at your workplace, please contact us at:
