Jan. 1, 2015: Prime Contractor Regulations to Take Effect


The Occupational Health and Safety (Prime Contractor) Regulations will take effect Jan. 1, 2015. Under Sec. 3-13 of the Saskatchewan Employment Act, prime contractors will be required at every worksite where there are multiple employers or self-employed persons, and the worksite meets “the prescribed circumstances.” If there’s no written agreement assigning the role of prime contractor at those worksites that must have one, the owner will be the default prime contractor.
