The Mainstay Awards set a standard in the province by recognizing excellence in workplace safety. Organized by WCB Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education, this world-class safety awards program recognizes those individuals, organizations and employers whose efforts have moved Nova Scotia toward a safer future.

Safer workplaces mean more Nova Scotians returning home at the end of the day. The awards celebrate safety champions and publicly recognize effective injury prevention and return-to-work programs.

The format and timing of the awards program is currently being reconsidered as we look at the safety year as a whole and determine the next steps for the Workplace Safety Strategy. Details will be updated here as they become available.

Safe workplaces don’t just happen

Achieving excellence in occupational health and safety is a journey, guided by a fundamental belief that one Nova Scotian injured on the job is one too many.
