As we move forward into the coming weeks, we want to ensure you are up-to-date with important legislative changes and equipped with the necessary resources to maintain a safe working environment. Here are some key updates and resources tailored to address violence prevention.

Legislative Changes: In the Saskatchewan Employment Act (SEA), several amendments have been made to enhance workplace safety. These come into effect May 17th:

  • The definition of a worker now includes secondary and post-secondary students.
  • Employers are mandated to investigate incidents of harassment.
  • Employers must have a violence policy and prevention plan in place.
  • Occupational Health and Safety Officers are empowered to take photographs and recordings during inspections.
  • OHS Officers can exclude nominees from interviews during investigations.
  • Plus, other general amendments have been introduced.
