Safety is one of our core values. We believe that no task is so urgent that it can’t be done safely. We expect all employees — including our contractors to adopt this mindset.
All of our contractors must comply with applicable laws, regulations, bylaws, rules and standards at any of our facilities or worksites. As a contractor, it’s your responsibility to familiarize yourself and your employees with our health and safety policies, standards, forms and checklists.
Check out the resources below for more information.
The objectives of the handbook are to supplement contractor orientation and provide a resource for maintaining the health and safety of SaskPower contractors.
Safety and Environment Rulebook
The Safety and Environment Rulebook provides an overview of health, safety and environmental requirements. SaskPower employees and contractors are required to abide by all applicable rules set out in the Rulebook.
Standard Protection Code
The Standard Protection Code is SaskPower’s documented lockout procedure as required by provincial occupational health and safety legislation.
Safety Mitigation Plans
We have a Site Mitigation Plan to always ensure on-site safety.
Health and Safety Policies and Standards
We prioritize the health and safety of our employees and contractors. To ensure everyone’s well-being, we’ve created a comprehensive set of policies and standards. These guidelines cover a wide range of topics, from public safety and hazard assessment to personal protective equipment and emergency response. Whether you’re working alone, handling loads, or operating in hot, cold, or icy conditions, we have a standard to guide you.
Remember, safety is everyone’s responsibility. Let’s work together to keep a safe place to work.
