Safety at Work

Occupational Health & Safety

Workers have the right to refuse unusually dangerous work.

If you are concerned with exposure and you feel your workplace is unsafe, you are encouraged to discuss reasonable protection measures with your employer, raise the issue with your occupational health and safety committee, and consult the safety resources found on the Government of Saskatchewan website.

Employers are responsible to continuously examine their workplaces and ensure they are providing a safe and healthy environment to protect their workers as well as customers.
