Resources for Small Employers in Health Care

Setting up an occupational health and safety policy manual, developing the related forms and training employees can be a time consuming process for small employers in Saskatchewan, especially when they have limited resources.

SASWH, in consultation with the Regina & District Personal Care Homes Association, has developed some sample occupational health and safety forms for your use.

If you require any assistance in adapting the documents to your organization, implementing your OH&S program, training your employees or additional support for your occupational health committee/representative, SASWH is ready to help.
