To protect Saskatchewan's farmers, their families and employees, our Farm Safety Program works with many partners to prevent injuries and to promote safe work practices on the farm.

Our Labour Standards Division provides services to Saskatchewan employers and employees in support of fair and equitable workplace practices. The Division aims to enforce labour legislation and to  ensure that employees and employers are aware of their rights and responsibilities under these laws.
