Everyone in the workplace has a responsibility to keep themselves and others safe. This includes employers, employees, supervisors, self-employed people, contractors and owners. Everyone has a duty to know and understand health and safety rules and to follow those rules.
These rules can be found in the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. They deal with everything from requirements for workplaces to be clean and well-ventilated, to protective equipment that must be supplied and worn, to rules about safety around entrances and exits. For more information about workplace health and safety in Saskatchewan, visit the workplace safety page of the Occupational Health & Safety Division.
All employees also have a responsibility to not harass others in the workplace or participate in any harassment in the workplace. Employees must cooperate in any harassment investigations. Employers must develop and implement a written non-harassment policy and take all reasonable to steps to ensure that their employees are not harassed in the workplace.
PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
