Occupational health and safety and the internal responsibility system : OHS information for all Alberta work site parties

An internal responsibility system is a way of sharing responsibility for health and safety between everyone in the workplace. Responsibility is shared according to each person’s legal obligations, which are often based upon that person’s authority and control at the worksite. In other jurisdictions, including Alberta, the internal responsibility system is not included explicitly in legislation, but is a defining concept – especially, in regards to legislated roles and responsibilities for work site parties.
