Find tools and resources to help keep the people in your workplace safe. Our Working to Well program provides tools and resources to people injured at work and employers through recovery at work or returning to work after recovering.  Check out the website to learn more about your role in enabling safe and timely returns to work.

Psychologically Healthy and Safe Workplaces

Risk Mapping Tool

These resources will help Nova Scotia employers improve the psychological health and safety of their workplaces. Great safety leaders take a proactive approach to identifying risks in their own workplace to prevent injuries before they happen. Our Risk Mapping Tool can be used in any workplace to help identify, assess, and control injury hazards.
