WorkSafe Saskatchewan is a partnership between the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board and the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety. Formed in 2002 out of a need to reduce the number of workplace injuries and fatalities, the partners work through an integrated provincial injury prevention strategy to deliver programs that move Saskatchewan towards zero workplace injuries.
WorkSafe is an advocate for Mission: Zero – an initiative that launched in 2008 by the partners in response to Saskatchewan having the second worst injury rate in Canada. Mission: Zero is a call to action and goal for employers and companies to achieve zero workplace injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering by families.
