Saskatchewan Regulation First Aid Kits

Everyone in the workplace has a legal responsibility for safety. We offer kits that meet & exceed minimum first aid requirements outline in Table 1 of Saskatchewan’s OHS (2004). To carry out health and safety within the workplace, everyone must know what their duties are, have the ability to carry out the duties, and have the required knowledge in their field. Section 3-79 of The Saskatchewan Employment Act outlines the increase in penalty amounts which act as a strong deterrent to those who would ignore the Act and place workers in danger. Maximum fine for individuals is $500,000 and for corporations is $1,500,000.
