Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Alberta’s Auditor General says the province is doing poorly at identifying companies with the worst safety records. That, in a report following up on a two-year old recommendation to crack down on high-risk employers.

Joining us for this discussion is Randy Corbett, Alberta Union of Provincial Employees' Union Representative on Occupational Health and Safety; and Steve Eichler, a Partner at Field Law, specializing in Occupational Health and Safety.
