Employers Have a Responsibility
Employers have a responsibility under the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act to provide a safe working environment for their employees. While this takes an initial investment of time, money and training; the results are reduced fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
As an employer, you also benefit from cost savings such as; lower medical expenses, lower workers' compensation costs for the entire industry, avoidance of administrative penalties and the reduction in costs to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations. Construction Safety Nova Scotia can help employers create their safety program from the ground up and offers products and services to assist every step of the way.
