Policies and Procedures: Occupational Health and Safety

Saskatchewan Health Authority Policies


As Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) policy and procedures continue to be developed and approved, they will be communicated to those they apply to and posted on the Authority's employee intranet.

All former regional health authority policies remain in effect until specifically replaced by an SHA policy, procedure or other document. These include procedures, protocols, guidelines, work standards, standard work, medical directives, etc.


Former Saskatoon Health Region (OHS) Policies

The former SHR Occupational Health and Safety Policy/Procedure and Program Manual is a framework that includes all components of an established safety program under Saskatchewan OHS Regulation 3-11. It provides general guidelines for all Saskatchewan Health Authority facilities and staff.

Paper based manuals are not being provided to departments. Updates can be replaced by manual holders as they are released. Paper based copies should be placed in central locations in the department or at the site.

Forms are now part of each applicable policy, and are located as appendices within each applicable policy; users are not required to "open links" to access or print forms.

January 2022 Release:

What's New?

To comply with OHS Regulations 2020, all policies and procedure have been updated with the new legislative numbering. OHS Regulations was updated to be consistent with Federal Legislative numbering.

Occupational Health and Safety Policy/Procedure and Program Manual is organized into 12 categories with policies and associated procedures under each.
