I agree. So much of money is used in bringing workplaces to safety. Unfortunately, most companies still compromise with the safety guidelines and use poor quality of material, equipments, and man power to get their work done. It imposes more threat and increases the chances of workplace accidents.

I agree , if the company implemented safety procedure during the work 

the accidents  be less,  but  most  worker  and company's not  implement safety procedure during work 

Actually there are three major causes of accidents which happen at the workplaces -

1. Poor quality of equipments used.

2. Lack of knowledge

3. Divided attention at work

Alberta has not done a comprehensive review of the OHS system since it was enacted in 1976. Workplaces and the nature of work have changed a great deal since then, including:

  • When and where we work - around-the-clock shift work, telecommuting and home-based businesses have become commonplace.
  • How we work - there are increasing complexities around employment relationships like contract work, temporary or short-term work that make it difficult for employers to manage health and safety.
  • What we work with - equipment and procedures used in the workplace have profoundly changed with new technologies, changing OHS hazards and creating new questions about how OHS laws should apply.

We're reviewing the OHS system to ensure Alberta’s laws and best practices keep up with the needs of modern workplaces, changing technology and other jurisdictions.

Protective measures are cost effective in long terms but  unfortunately most of  the organisation tries to cut corners, which leads to workplace injuries.
