Legislation: The Occupational Health and Safety Act, Ch. 0-2, RSA 2000
Camrose Public Library is required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act to ensure that employees required for working alone can do so safely. The following policy outlines how the library will take steps to make staff working alone as safe as possible.
The Library considers an employee to be working alone if the employee is by himself or herself at a work site in circumstances where assistance is not readily available when needed. Examples of those who could be at risk from working alone include those who: work in sites isolated from public view, work by themselves without close or direct contact with co-workers, travel alone or do hazardous work with no routine interaction with the public, travel away from base offices to meet clients, or handle cash.
