Our provincial safety system touches on all aspects of life.
Whenever we turn on the light, wash our hands, or adjust the thermostat, it has to work safely. The Safety Codes Council is constantly reviewing and updating codes to recognize new practices and to improve on old ones to be safer, more efficient, or better for the environment.
Here you will find information relevant to all Albertans. Safety Tips are brochures for many home improvement projects, the Variances section reports any adaptations to the code that have been allowed, or Orders where you will find out about orders for compliance; check Appeals for appeal proceedings. Of course, all are welcome to check out our Annual Conference, for learning and networking within the safety codes system.
