Saskatchewan health and safety officer can issue fines
Occupational health officers in Saskatchewan will soon be able to issue financial penalties for non-compliance with health and safety laws at workplaces through summary offence ticketing.
That means they’ll be able to give tickets to employers, contractors, owners, suppliers, supervisors, self-employed persons and workers for any of 71 violations of the Occupational Health and Safety legislation.
Voluntary payment amounts range from $250 to $1,000.
While officers will continue to prosecute flagrant violations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, summary offence tickets will not be issued until July 1.
After a sufficient period of implementation, Labour Relations and Workplace Safety will conduct an evaluation of the new system to ensure it is serving as a deterrent for non-compliance in the workplace.
