Health & Safety Regulations

In accordance with the Province of Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Act, the Alberta Gift Fair requires that all reasonable steps and precautions be taken to protect the health and safety of all persons involved in the production of its shows. Prevention of injury is a key objective, with every possible measure to be taken to provide a safe, healthy work environment. To succeed, these safety initiatives require that every exhibitor assumes responsibility for helping to meet this objective. Exhibitors must, therefore, carefully read the applicable sections of the Occupational Health & Safety Act, and fully understand their responsibilities and that of their employees/hired workers while at the show.

In compliance with established safe work practices and procedures, and as a minimum requirement, the Alberta Gift Fair asks that all persons on the show floor during move-in and move-out wear protective/safety shoes. Additional personal protective equipment, such as hardhats and safety goggles, must be made available to your staff where overhead activity is taking place.

IMPORTANT REMINDER
All persons involved in the move-in/move-out process (i.e., setup and tear-down of a trade show) must be properly dressed and equipped to work safely in specific areas of the show deemed by the Act, or by an on-site Safety Inspector, as an 'industrial' environment which may involve the use of heavy equipment (forklifts, etc.), as well as 'overhead activities' (hanging signs, lights etc.). These areas, including areas in and around booths, may be marked off with safety cones or caution tape. Only persons wearing hardhats and safety shoes will be permitted into these areas until all work is completed.

 

Working in sandals/flip-flops/open-toed shoes/bare feet, etc. is strictly forbidden on the show floor. Any individual wearing inappropriate footwear will be prevented from entering the show floor by Show security.

HELP US ENSURE EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THE SHOW IS SAFE & PROTECTED!
Exhibitors are responsible for the health and safety of all employees and other persons on the show floor who are directly or indirectly under their supervision

Establish safe work practices and procedures, and as a minimum requirement, the CanGift Fairs ask that all persons on the show floor during move-in and move-out wear protective/safety shoes. Additional personal protective equipment, such as hardhats and safety goggles, must be made available to your staff where "overhead compliance activity" is taking place.

As an Alberta Gift Fair exhibitor, it is your responsibility to inform/contact all persons you will be hiring (i.e., your staff and any outside contractors hired to set up your booth, bring in your product, or anyone required to be on the show floor during move-in and out), that they must wear safety shoes, as well as any other necessary protective equipment, to keep them safe from injury.
