Your Safety Committee and the Law

COMPASS Special Event - Your Safety Committee & The Law

Brought to you in partnership with Service Hospitality 

Do you currently sit on, or have interest in sitting on your organization’s Occupational Health and Safety Committee? Do all of your current committee members have the required training?

Your organization’s Occupational Health & Safety Committee is an integral part of your organization’s Safety Management System. The Committee not only helps review safety policies and procedures, but it also plays a key role in workplace inspections and incident investigations.

This workshop will walk you through the legal requirements of how to run your safety committee effectively. Your Safety Committee & The Law meets the requirements of section 46 of the Saskatchewan OHS Regulation for training of representatives and committee members. For more information, click here.

This full-day course has been split into three 2-hour virtual sessions (over a course of three days) and will cover:

  • Roles and responsibilities of each Committee member
  • Occupational Health & Safety Committee legislation
  • Preparing, conducting, and evaluating a workplace inspection
  • Identifying direct, indirect, and root causes and how to put controls in place
  • Completing an incident investigation report


Are you a COMPASS eligible organization? You can register for this course at no cost! Other organizations can register at a low rate of $25.

Please limit your registration to two people per organization. If you have more than two people interested, you can request to be put on a wait list. If the course doesn’t reach the maximum attendance size, individuals will be contacted in the order that their name appears on the wait list.

Your Safety Committee and the Law will be delivered virtually on the following dates. You must attend all dates to receive your Certificate of Completion.

Registration will be open until February 25 at 4:00 p.m.

Friday, March 5, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Module 1: Making your OH&S Committee Shine

  • For an OH&S Committee to be effective, its members must understand the various roles and responsibilities of members and co-chairs. Occupational Health & Safety Committee legislation will be reviewed to understand all legal obligations and best practices will be discussed to determine how the Committee can go above and beyond to truly make a difference in their organization.

Friday, March 12, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Module 2: Workplace Inspections

  • Effective health and safety inspections are one of the most important incident prevention tools in an organization’s health and safety program.  Learn how often they should be done, who should conduct them, and how to evaluate findings in order to make meaningful improvements in the workplace.

Friday, March 19, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Module 3: Incident Reporting and Investigation

  • Incident reporting and investigation is a key method for correcting issues in the workplace. By understanding why an incident occurred, you can be confident you have the tools to correct it for the future. Learn how to thoroughly report and investigate incidents and injuries to ensure the same incident never happens again.


Thanks to COMPASS funding, organizations are able to send two employees at no cost to this three part training course. If you have more people to register, you can request that they be placed on a wait list.

Other organizations may register for $25 (plus GST)
