The Role of the Prime Contractor

Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) requires that every worksite with two or more contractors performing work have a Prime Contractor appointed by the Owner. If there is no designation of a Prime Contractor or there is a conflict for the Prime Contractor the Owner is deemed legally responsible for the health and safety of the worksite.

In 2018, OHS was amended to more specifically reflect individual worksite responsibilities and now clearly spells out the duties of the Prime Contractor, giving better clarity to this important and often complex safety role.

From a risk standpoint, proper knowledge and execution of the Prime Contractor role is vital. Having a dedicated and highly qualified team is an investment in peace of mind for property owners and land developers.

How to Build a Culture of Safety

Safety must be based on values that work, not just values that sound good. The foundation of a strong safety culture must start with the highest levels of management. That will ensure buy-in from everyone in the company. A safety culture is not created overnight. It requires unwavering commitment, constant assessment and effective accountability systems.

Our Safety Services team understands what it takes to create and live a culture of safety and protection and is eager to assist you to achieve the same.
