Partnerships in the Health and Safety Program are based on the premise that when employers and workers voluntarily build effective health and safety programs in their own workplaces, the human and financial costs of workplace injuries and illnesses will be reduced. The Alberta government’s labour department believes that supporting health and safety programs leads to larger reductions in injuries than regulatory compliance alone.
Through partnerships with safety associations, industry groups, education institutes and labour organizations, a framework has been established to promote and certify health and safety programs. It is through these initiatives that The Filter Shop enacts our commitment to the safety of our employees, customers, and partners.
