Most employers have obligations under provincial first aid regulations. Harmonizing these regulations with national standards plays an important role in improving the health, safety, and environment of New Brunswickers by ensuring the products and services we use are safe, reliable, and consistent. Harmonization also support the economy by promoting innovation and reducing red tape.
As a stakeholder-driven organization, we value your knowledge and expertise and seek to integrate your feedback into our decision-making process. Most of the standards under review focus on training agencies and the provisions that affect New Brunswick workplaces, which we believe warrants consultation.
The document below includes a comprehensive summary of the amendments under consideration if you require additional context. Those highlighted in yellow indicate questions we are asking you to weigh in on.
The consultation will run from September 22 to October 20. If you have questions, please contact WorkSafeNB Communications.
