WCB Business Information Event – Yarmouth, Oct 6-7

As an employer, you must manage all aspects of your business – including the health and safety of your workers. You’re busy and you just want to know what is required of you so you can successfully run your business. We can help you navigate the complexities of regulation and legislation around workplace health and safety.

 

Industry Safety Associations have partnered with the Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia (WCB) and Labour and Advanced Education (LAE) to host a business information event.

 

Join us to learn about programs and services that can help your small or medium business be successful. Do you have questions about injury prevention, safety training, return-to-work management? We’ll have answers!

 

Over two days – October 6 and 7 – representatives from industry safety associations, the WCB and LAE will be available to answer your questions and help you identify resources to manage health and safety in your workplace. There will also be scheduled presentations on specific topics:
