Saskatchewan residents are encouraged to register their dogs with SaskPower during the month of May for a chance to win a gift certificate for pet supplies.
“The Saskatchewan Government takes Occupational Health and Safety seriously,” said Rob Norris, Minister Responsible for SaskPower. “Making sure that all employees have a safe work environment is important as the province grows at a rapid pace.”
Register your dog at www.saskpower.com or call 1-888-757-6937 for a chance to win one of seven gift certificates for pet food and supplies. All dogs registered during the month of May will be entered to win.
“We all love our pets, but at times dogs can pose a safety risk to meter readers and other employees who need access to your property,” said Robert Watson, SaskPower President and CEO. “The vast majority of pet owners do an excellent job of ensuring SaskPower employees are safe when visiting their properties, but we still have an issue because 11 employees were injured in 2011 and another 19 reported close calls.”
SaskPower encourages dog owners to keep their pets inside and away from screen doors when a SaskPower employee is working in your yard. If the employee needs to enter a home, customers are asked to keep their dogs leashed securely outside or in a separate part of the house.
One $200, three $100 and three $50 certificates will be up for grabs. There is a limit of one entry into the draw per household.
Winners will be contacted during the week of June 7.
