September is a busy month with students returning to school.
Although wearing a mask is not mandatory in New Brunswick, use of community masks is encouraged by public health. WorkSafeNB has created posters employers can download, print, and post in their workplaces.
WorkSafeNB is pleased to announce a new, improved way for employers to report workplace injuries and illnesses and for workers to apply for workers’ compensation benefits. As part of our long-term plan to transform the client experience, we have made the application for workers’ compensation benefits process simpler and easier. Rather than a joint form, there is now a separate application process for workers and separate reporting process for employers.
2019 was a year of exceptional change at WorkSafeNB as our organization adopted and acted upon the recommendations of the Task Force on WorkSafeNB as well as those of the Auditor General.
WorkSafeNB is committed to superior service, and this means appropriate and timely care to workers. To help ensure such service, we've created a new Initial Psychology Assessment Report (IPAR), Psychology Progress Report (PPR) and Psychology Discharge Report (PDR).
In response to a recent heat alert issued by the Province of New Brunswick, WorkSafeNB is reminding workers to be mindful of heat-related risks.
