Proposed Amendments to OHS Regulations Survey
The Government of Saskatchewan is seeking input on proposed amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 in the area of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as part of a larger interest in identifying areas for harmonization of key standards and with a goal of simplifying regulatory requirements for organizations that work across jurisdictions. In general, these proposals focus on common Canadian Standards Association (CSA) ratings.
While the SCSA is of the opinion that the impact is expected to affect manufacturers and suppliers of PPE, it recognizes that this will also likely impact member companies that work across multiple jurisdictions. The SCSA would like to understand the construction industry leadership perspective on this issue and know if these proposed amendments will have positive, negative or no impact on the businesses in the industry. The SCSA will reflect the perspectives of its membership in any recommendations on this matter.
To help the SCSA in preparing its response to the Government of Saskatchewan on this issue, please consider participating in this brief seven-question survey. All feedback is welcome and much appreciated.
