Workshops and e-courses help New Brunswickers build healthy and safe workplaces. Blended (in-class and online) learning is also available to joint health and safety committee (JHSC) members and health and safety representatives. This blended learning option is equivalent to the traditional three full days of learning.
WorkSafeNB believes we need to work more closely with New Brunswick’s workplaces to improve workplace health and safety. That is why WorkSafeNB will be approving external providers to deliver JHSC training workshops in 2020. As there are many reputable and knowledgeable agencies that can deliver health and safety training, we will focus our resources and services to work more directly with our province’s workplaces. A list of approved providers will be made available in the coming months. There are still some in-class and blended JHSC workshops available until the end of 2019.
