May 3 - 9 is Safety and Health Week (formerly NAOSH Week) - a continent-wide initiative to focus employers, employees, partners and the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community.
This week, workplaces across Nova Scotia will mark Safety and Health Week without the usual in-person gatherings that help connect and remind employers and workers to make safety a top priority, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has meant a shift in the way many of us work, and it will continue to transform how we focus on workplace safety over the months ahead. That’s why this year, our focus for Safety and Health Week is on helping workplaces navigate working safely during the pandemic.
