Level 2 OHC Course (Saskatoon Feb 26 & 27, 2020)
We are transitioning to a paperless delivery model, beginning with using electronic versions of the Act and Regulations in the classroom.
Participants are asked to download the Act & Regulations to their tablet, e-reader, laptop or similar device ahead of time and bring it with them to class. Phone is not recommended due to screen size and the amount of class time spent utilizing the device. Paper copies of the Act and Regs will now be available in the classroom for reference only for those who do not have a device or prefer to use a book.
We have consolidated the Sask Employment Act 2014, OHS Regularions 1996, WHIMS 2015 regs and Prime Contractor regs into a single document, which can be downloaded here:

A critical component of this course derives from attendance and active participation in class. Attendees and employers must commit to full attendance, as missing class time due to late arrivals or absences during the session may result in an attendee being asked to withdraw and re-register in a future session.
