WHEREAS an exemption from the requirements of Section 154 of The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 pursuant to Section 3-85 of The Saskatchewan Employment Act is in effect with respect to the training of municipal residents contracted by rural municipalities to remove snow from municipal roads (example: snow plow clubs).

WHEREAS during periods of drought dust control methods lose their effectiveness without the reapplication of water and residents could be contracted to apply water, similar to a snow plow club, if treated in the same manner with respect to regulations.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM request an exemption from Section 154 of The Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 pursuant to Section 3-85 of The Saskatchewan Employment Act for residents contracted by rural municipalities to apply water to reactivate dust control products.
