Review of The Radiation Health and Safety Regulations

In 2019, the government undertook a review of the radiation health and safety provisions of The Saskatchewan Employment Act, which resulted in the establishment of:

  • consistent enforcement tools for occupational health officers and radiation health officers;
  • an appeal mechanism similar to that of the occupational health and safety part of the Act; and
  • increasing fines for second and subsequent offences.

In 2021, the government turned its attention to reviewing The Radiation Health and Safety Regulations, 2005. The purpose of the review was to help modernize those provisions where technological advancements have resulted in the existing regulations being redundant or ineffective, and to identify regulatory requirements that place an unnecessary burden on employers, owners and workers, or create needless red tape.

Both federal and provincial legislation regulate radiation emitting equipment.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. The government has concluded this review.
