WorkSafe Saskatchewan has launched two new online resources to keep employers and their staff safe on the job.

The new Foundational Pillars online safety resource has free, customizable forms, as well as links to online and classroom training. The Foundational Pillars focus on hazard assessment, practices and procedures, training, inspections and investigations. 

The second resource is a new WorkSafe manual, "Guidelines to Managing Asbestos in Buildings." It provides carpenters, insulators, electricians, plumbers and custodians with guidance when doing repairs, maintenance, renovations and construction.

Disturbing material that contains asbestos can release asbestos fibres into the air. This can cause irreversible lung damage and life-threatening lung diseases when inhaled.
