    Creative sentencing helps Alberta families affected by workplace tragedy - Machinery and Equipment Magazine, Canada
    The most recent amendments to Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety laws -- enacted in January 2003 -- have been applied to directly support families who have been affected by a workplace fatality or life-altering injury.

    Section 41.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) of Alberta allows judges to impose innovative sentences -- any condition they consider appropriate -- to those convicted of OHS offences. Penalties have included directing monies from fines for education or improvement in industry standards as well as donating to not-for-profit organizations to help victims and prevent future fatalities and injuries.
