Valerie (Gonda Safety Consulting Lead Consultant) is the quintessential HSE Advisor/Lead with whom I have worked since my start in Oil & Gas. Clearly the best I have met. Applauded by the Owners (Cenovus & Interpipeline during my tenure) and extremely sought after by execution teams (from VP/Directors of crews of pipeliners, fitters and electricians) to lead the program delivery for HSE. She strikes a great balance between Owner and Contractor. Always maintaining an active presence amidst the crews, she nurtures a very preventive and educative approach to the safety culture (leading indicators) supporting execution crews, and remains highly confident to enforce via the regulatory compliance approach. She also remains a key enabler for the leadership, who retains overall responsibility for safety. Sheis a phenomenal team player.- B. MacGillivray, Sr. Strategic Planner, NOR-EX Engineering

Farm, Ranch & Agricultural Safety

Updated: Oct 22, 2018


The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act sets the minimum standards for protecting waged, non-family farm and ranch workers. Employers must ensure the health and safety of workers on the site, as far as is reasonably practicable. Workers must work safely and cooperate with their employer to keep the workplace safe.


Basic safety standards are now in place. Prior to 2016, Alberta was the only province where farms and ranches were still exempt from workplace health and safety laws.


Detailed technical rules that reflect the unique aspects of the industry come into effect on Dec. 1, 2018. The new rules are the result of extensive collaboration with farmers and other members of the agriculture industry. They give farm and ranch workers similar rights and protections as other workers, while preserving the unique way of life on farms and ranches.


Being raised in rural East Central Alberta, our GSC Lead Consultant has an extensive background in farm & ranching operations, and a compressive understanding of the hazards associated with farming operations.


Review our online training courses outlining dairy operations, trucking, fall awareness, confined spaces, and other courses which may pertain to your farming operations.


For a complete hazard assessment review of your farming operations, please contact us for an inspection of your workplace to give you an overview of the safe work practices to include in your Agricultural health & safety management program.
