Safety and Health Week 2024 – Focus on Psychological Health

From May 6-11, employers, workers, and safety partners across the province are focused on the importance of safe and healthy workplaces for Safety and Health Week. Brought to you by Health and Safety Professionals Canada, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety and Threads of Life, this week is the perfect time to refocus and recommit to safe and healthy workplaces. 

As WCB Nova Scotia prepares to deliver service for a new compensable injury this September—gradual onset psychological injury -- preventing psychological injury is the focus of our Safety and Health Week programming.

To help employers and workers understand gradual onset psychological injuries and how to prevent them, we’ve created and curated a series of helpful resources. These can be accessed by visiting our Safety and Health Week hub.

An awareness campaign is also underway to help direct workers and employers to resources they need to create psychologically safe and healthy workplaces.
