Rights and Responsibilities in the Workplace

Everyone in the workplace is legally responsible for workplace safety. The Saskatchewan Employment Act requires everyone to work together.

In The Saskatchewan Employment Act, the word "duty" is used to describe responsibilities. Responsibility is an obligation for carrying out duties properly. Authority is the right to make decisions and direct the work of others.

To carry out health and safety duties at a place of employment, everyone must:

  • know what their duties are;
  • have the authority, resources, and time to carry them out; and
  • have required knowledge (education, training, and certification).
