Safe Workplace Program

Safe Workplace

 

Tell us what you think

WSCC is seeking feedback from employers, business owners, and all those with an interest in workplace safety on a new initiative called the Safe Workplace Program.

Safe Workplace aims to encourage businesses and employers to improve their health and safety programs, and strengthen safety culture in workplaces across the north. Employer feedback is important to make sure WSCC includes diverse opinions and ideas into proposed activities in the future.

Until August 13, anyone with ideas, suggestions, or questions about the program can join the conversation by filling out our online survey, or attending one of our virtual meetings to share and ask questions. 

Please read the discussion papers below for information on the program, including the benefits of participation, proposed incentives, and how your business can become a Safe Workplace. 

The survey is now closed. If you would like to provide feedback, please email us today. (Download copy of survey questions here.)

Email us for more information in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories or call us at 1-877-404-4407 (NU), 1-800-661-0792 (NWT).
