WorkSafeNB has an important role to play in New Brunswick’s economy. Guided by the pillars outlined in this 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, we have charted a course to propel WorkSafeNB forward on a path of transformation - a transformation designed to create public value through the following pillars:
1. DRIVE A SAFETY-FIRST CULTURE - enhancing existing protections for workers to keep them healthy and safe at work;
2. ACHIEVE EFFECTIVE RECOVERY - effectively and efficiently tapping into all available health care resources when rehabilitation is necessary so that injured workers can safely return to work as soon as possible;
3. PROTECT SYSTEM SUSTAINABILITY - ensuring that we provide services and benefits that are fair, accessible, transparent and fiscally responsible, and;
4. BUILD A WORKPLACE THAT IS COMMITTED TO SUPERIOR SERVICE - investing in technology, processes and people to improve the overall customer experience for both workers and employers.
Over the next three years, WorkSafeNB will focus on reducing the impact of workplace injury and illness by driving a safety-first culture. We will continue to work with government to enhance health and safety legislation and regulations. We will also focus resources to place greater emphasis on building a culture of safety excellence in workplaces; one that is designed to eliminate workplace injuries and fatalities, so that all New Brunswickers can live in a province where the risk of being injured at work moves to being a thing of the past.
