Prince Edward Island’s Occupational Health and Safety Act and regulations contain legal requirements that must be met by all Prince Edward Island (PEI) workplaces. Many sections of the legislation have associated guidelines and publications to help workplaces meet these requirements.

This OHS Guide presents key topics to assist you – PEI’s employers and employees workers – in understanding your legislative obligations within your workplaces. This guide provides information on topics in a summarized format. This guide does not presently address all workplace health and safety legislation; therefore – users should always refer back to the legislation or regulation for specific requirements that relate to their applicable industry.
