Saskatchewan is looking for public input as it revamps its workplace health and safety legislation.

From Aug. 16 to Oct. 18, citizens can provide input on part III (occupational health and safety) of The Saskatchewan Employment Act.

“Our province has a plan for growth that includes ensuring we have safe and healthy workplaces” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. “We want to ensure that the legislation we have supports both employers and employees which is why we are asking the people of Saskatchewan to provide input on the occupational health and safety provisions of the Act.”

This review focuses on serval key aspects of the occupational health and safety part of the Act, including violence and prevention programs, right to refuse unusually dangerous work, roles of occupational health committees, and other relevant matters.
