Duties of Owners

Under The Saskatchewan Employment Act, an owner must:

  • maintain and ensure a plant that is used as the main place of employment does not endanger the health and safety of anyone working in, on or near the plant; and
  • know and follow the health and safety requirements stated in The Saskatchewan Employment Act and regulations.

A plant is a general term that describes all locations where work could take place. In The Saskatchewan Employment Act, plant means any premises, site, land, mine, water, structure, fixture or equipment employed or used in the carrying out of any occupation (e.g., a florist's delivery truck).

When the Occupational Health and Safety Branch forms the opinion that the condition of a plant (workplace/site) poses a risk to the health and safety of workers, the director may issue an order requiring an owner to provide a written report, from a qualified person, about the plant's condition.
