The Roadbuilding and Heavy Construction sectors are two of the most high-risk  industries from an occupational health and safety (OHS) standpoint. As safety is an essential component of our culture, the ARHCA has developed the RSTS for industry, by industry, to improve employees' ability to identify hazards, manage risk and reduce incidents.


Introducing our new module - Working Safely Around Traffic

The RSTS is an e-learning program that offers basic, essential safety awareness training for workers involved in the roadbuilding and heavy construction industries. It is used by companies of all sizes as an onboarding tool for new and experienced workers and is completed by over 2000 workers each year across Alberta and Western Canada. The current course is 24 modules including:

  • 12 basic modules to introduce learners to

    • OHS legislation,

    • the common hazards on a worksite and

    • the importance of hazard awareness and controls

  • 12 specialized modules providing key information on

    • industry terminology,

    • best practices and

    • safe work processes across the roadbuilding and heavy construction specialties.


In February 2022, the ARHCA launched a new and improved RSTS. In December 2022, the Working Safely Around Traffic module was launched and included in the RSTS.  All 24 modules contain top-quality videography, graphics, and animation and references to current Alberta legislation and industry best practices. The course includes real life scenarios for better learner engagement with the material. More than 60 subject matter experts contributed their time and expertise to ensure that the RSTS is a best-in-class safety awareness program.


The ARHCA developed the RSTS for industry to improve workers ability to identify hazards, manage risk and reduce incidents.
