Joint Industry Committee (JIC) Certification


Saskatchewan certification guidelines

The Joint Industry Committee (JIC) is a voluntary group of safety professionals representing industry and labour with the desire to help more employers develop and implement effective safety management systems.  The JIC was established by WorkSafe in 2006.

The primary goal of the Joint Industry Committee is two-fold:

  • uncover common ground regarding safety issues
  • establish a framework of standards for safety programs, evaluations, and certifications.

For some industries, the framework will lead to certification programs; for others it will provide standards to help reduce injuries within the industry.

Please contact one of the committee members if you have questions about certification in Saskatchewan.

The JIC has developed a series of documents that promote effective safety management through certification.  Several organizations in Saskatchewan have adopted these guidelines and offer certification based on the work of the JIC.
