Fall Protection legislation has changed in Saskatchewan. These changes could seriously impact a person or business caught unaware.
Saskatchewan's Occupational Health and Safety Division conducts worksite and building inspections annually to ensure standards are known, understood and enforced. Beginning July 1, 2014 they were given the authority to administer Summary Offence Tickets(SOT s) as a tool to enforce and protect occupational health and safety. They are committed to an internal workplace responsibility system that recognizes that the efforts of the workplaces, not government, are the key in preventing occupational injuries. Employers, contractors, owners, suppliers, self-employed persons, supervisors and workers can all be ticketed under this system.
