The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) operates like an insurance company. We provide guaranteed benefits and programs to injured workers in industries covered by The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013 and we protect registered employers from lawsuits when a workplace injury happens.
The Saskatchewan WCB was established in 1911 because of a historic compromise between Saskatchewan workers and employers. Under that compromise, workers injured on the job in covered industries do not have to pay for the benefits they receive or sue their employers to get them. Costs are paid entirely by Saskatchewan employers in covered industries. This is referred to as a no-fault insurance system, also referred to as the compensation system.
The WCB’s vision is to eliminate injuries and restore abilities. This is the fundamental driver of all that we do on behalf of our customers – the workers and employers of the province. The WCB is governed by The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013.
The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) is a public interest, not-for-profit, federally incorporated self-regulating organization which sets the certification standards for the OHS profession. BCRSP strives to advance the body of knowledge, the competency of the profession, and the value our certificants bring to society. The BCRSP grants the CRSP and CRST certifications to individuals who successfully complete the certification process through qualification review and certification examination. The Board governs its certificants in order that the public interest may be served and protected. Visit the website at www.bcrsp.ca for more information.
