The provincial government announced guidelines outlining the path toward the Green level of the COVID-19 recovery plan.
As a New Brunswick employer, you must have a documented plan that specifically addresses COVID-19. This requirement applies to all workplaces, whether you have continued to operate during the pandemic or are planning your re-opening. While your documented plan doesn’t need to be approved by WorkSafeNB or Public Health, it needs to be available at any time. You could be asked for it by either regulatory body.
A new campaign reminds employers of the importance of their operational plan. "Is your operational plan up to date?" reminds business owners of their responsibilities.
This year marks the 24th anniversary of Safety and Health (formerly NAOSH) Week.
WorkSafeNB has updated its chiropractic reporting process. Instead of two forms (for initial and follow-up visits), there is now one form for all visits. The Chiropractic Form 8-10 aligns with legislative changes and best practices affecting workplace injury recovery and return to work.
It’s who we come home to at the end of the day that makes our safety so valuable. The sad truth is that New Brunswickers are still dying from workplaces accidents and diseases - and one death is one too many.
As a result of recent increases in COVID-19 cases in the province and growing concern over variant strains, WorkSafeNB is reminding employers and employees of their obligations to follow Public Health measures to minimize exposure to COVID-19.
Please note that due to COVID-19 we are not accepting payments or processing Form 100s at our office locations at this time.
