Media Release - Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission Conducting Stakeholder Survey

Yellowknife, NT (October 24, 2016) - The Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) is conducting a stakeholder survey across the North.

Aimed at collecting information on the attitudes about workplace safety and injury prevention, and the awareness and satisfaction of the WSCC and our services, the data is used to guide the planning process for the future.

Beginning on October 15, randomly selected employers and workers in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut may receive a telephone call from Leger, a Canadian research company. The survey is provided in English, French, or Inuktitut, depending on stakeholder request.

“Engagement is one of the core values we have as an organization,” says Dave Grundy, President and CEO. “We are a service organization for employers and workers, and it’s important to understand where we’re meeting their needs, and where we can improve.”

The survey runs until mid-November. Stakeholders are encouraged to participate.

If not selected, stakeholders are still encouraged to contact the WSCC and provide feedback on their experience with us, as all information is valuable and essential to our growth. By working together, we hope to eliminate workplace diseases and injuries.
