May 2 - 8 Proclaimed as North American Occupational Safety and Health Week

Released on May 3, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed May 2 - 8 as North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week.

NAOSH Week was first launched in June 1997, marked by an agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico.  This agreement symbolizes joint venture, cooperation and the commitment to the common goals shared by all occupational health and safety stakeholders, including businesses, labour and governments.

"NAOSH Week shines a light on the importance of workplace safety education and partnerships at all levels," Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  "By working together we can achieve our goal of Mission: Zero and create safe workplaces and communities."

In 2020, 90 per cent of Saskatchewan workplaces had zero injuries and zero fatalities, a slight increase over 88 per cent in 2019.

"All employees deserve a healthy and safe workplace," Workers' Compensation Board Chairperson Gord Dobrowolsky said.  "Even one injury is one too many.  By working together toward a common goal of eliminating workplace injuries and illnesses, we can end unnecessary suffering."

Through WorkSafe Saskatchewan, a partnership between the Workers' Compensation Board and the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, the partners work through an integrated provincial injury prevention strategy to deliver programs that move Saskatchewan toward zero workplace injuries.
