WCB Nova Scotia and Department of Labour and Advanced Education Co-Host the WSIS AGM
On June 19, representatives from the Workers’ Compensation Board, Workers’ Advisers Program, Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal, and the Department of Labour and Advanced Education took part in the Workplace Safety and Insurance System Annual Meeting. 

The session was held at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and included remarks from Lisa Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Fisheries Sector Council, who provided an overview of the progress being made through the Fishing Safety Now strategy and Susan Dempsey, Executive Director of Aware-NS who outlined the significant work taking place to improve workplace health and safety in our Health and Community Services sectors. 

AWARE-NS, the Departments of Health and Wellness, Labour and Advanced Education, and Community Services, the Nova Scotia Health Authority, IWK Health Centre, and WCB Nova Scotia are working together with employers and organized labour to develop a five-year action plan.

The Workplace Safety Action Plan for Nova Scotia’s Health and Community Services Sectors will focus on improving occupational health and safety outcomes specifically for home care, long-term care, and community services sectors.

The AGM was hosted by Rodney Burgar, Chair of the Workers’ Compensation Board and Duff Montgomerie, Deputy Minister of Labour and Advanced Education and also included a viewing of one of the Working to Well videos.

The best ones are in the territories where they have help in the group. The aftercare really can keep people from returning to the hospital. The mind is a decent place to begin on the off chance that you ask them what services they have rung in a couple of regions to look at and you should discover your answer.

When i was studying engineering i didn't understand how useful it will be for me in future. And it's very pity. Because it is. When sometimes i had to do smth on my work i remember how i had to write <a href=""></a> and i didn't do that. Sometimes i have some problems because of it and i have to read student books second time. But I like my job and it deserve it.
