Safe Worker Award

Worker involvement is key to creating healthy and safe workplaces. Every year, workers across Saskatchewan help to save lives and reduce injuries and illnesses by identifying hazards and introducing new safety initiatives. Workers who care about safety create better work environments, healthier and safer workforces and more profitable businesses.

Interested in nominating a co-worker who has made safety a priority in your workplace? If you know someone that fits the description of a safe worker, nominate them for the 2021 WorkSafe Saskatchewan Safe Worker Award using either our online form or Safe Worker Award paper application. Award entries are reviewed by a committee and are awarded at our spring Compensation Institute event.

We are accepting nominations until Oct. 31, 2020.
