SASWH works with Saskatchewan Healthcare employers and workers, providing safety training, consulting and resources to reduce workplace risks and prevent occupational injuries and illnesses.

SASWH has secured a licence agreement with the Public Services Health and Safety Association of Ontario for the use of the Workplace Violence Risk Assessment tool, the Client Risk Assessment tool and Community Care tools which are now available at https://www.saswh.ca.  The Website is developed for employers and employees in the healthcare industry to identify risk factors and levels associated with workplace violence. By conducting the assessment through the Website, such health care providers can apply control interventions that promote both employee and patient safety, as well as ensure patient-centred care.
