Saskatchewan OHS Fall protection regulations and SOT's

Did you know Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety takes Fall Protection very seriously?  Worker safety is an ever growing concern.  As of July 1, 2014 Saskatchewan OH&S has implemented Summary Offence Ticketing.  SOT's will impose a financial penalty to offenders right on the spot.  Tickets will mainly be directed toward employers, contractors, owners, self-employed persons and suppliers. 

The details SOT's are listed at

Saskatoon's Northern Strands Engineered Fall Protection Division is well versed in current Fall Protection Legislation and Regulations.  We pride ourselves in developing commercial rooftop fall protection systems that exceed OHS and CSA standards.  Some of the products we offer are rooftop anchors, wall anchors, overhead lifelines, safety railings, vertical lifelines, portable travel systems, safety harnesses and self-retracting lanyards. 


Northern Strands Suspended Access Division expands to include Spider Blade Access Platforms

Northern Strands Suspended Access Division is now the Canadian distributor of Spider Blade Access Platforms.  Northern Strands now rents and has for sale complete BAP 360° units.   This includes the BAP 360° Trailer and the IBEX 1000P climb assist system.  For blade inspection and repair operations, suspended platforms offer a safe, productive, and cost-effective alternative to cranes and ground-based lifts.
