Helping more Nova Scotians go home safe

The WCB envisions a Nova Scotia safe and secure from workplace injury. 

Together with its partners, the WCB works to raise awareness of workplace injury, and to foster real, sustained behaviour change in workplaces.

Our public opinion polls show that half of Nova Scotians consider workplace injuries an inevitable part of life. Perhaps more disturbingly, half of people in management positions believe there is nothing they can do to prevent a workplace injury. This needs to change.

Our social marketing campaigns support our business goals of injury prevention and return to work. Our goal is to get workplace safety on the agenda at board room tables and dinner tables around the province.
