News Release Beware of misleading emails and phone calls

March 23, 2023

Unfortunately, we are still receiving reports that firms are contacting New Brunswick employers and suggesting they are non-compliant with provincial OHS laws. The representatives may claim to be WorkSafeNB or use aggressive sales tactics to push unneeded goods and services. These firms may use the WorkSafeNB or Government of New Brunswick logo without permission.

As an employer, you should be cautious when purchasing or using any services that claim to be compliant with New Brunswick’s occupational health and safety laws. Examples of products or services include health and safety program manuals, templates for procedures, or training, etc. It’s up to you to verify that these meet provincial requirements.

Our officers or health and safety specialists are happy to help if you have questions about NB OHS laws and your obligations. Our employees will always have official WorkSafeNB identification when they visit in person. We can always be reached at or 1 800 999-9775.

Please contact us if you suspect fraudulent or misleading phone calls or emails. Employers who wish to file a complaint on the tactics of a company soliciting products and services can also contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1 888 495-8501.

Thank you for helping to build a safer New Brunswick.
