Safety Matters


Our blog discussing workplace safety opportunities in Nova Scotia and around the world.

The Workers' Compensation Board of Nova Scotia has a lot to tweet!
The Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia’s Twitter account - @worksafeforlife - has launched! Managed by our Communications Department, it will be used as a communications tool and outreach channel to reach and engage with our stakeholders.

Follow us @worksafeforlife, to receive information including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Tips on workplace injury prevention
  • Information about WCB programs and services
  • The latest updates to our policies and procedures
  • Alerts about WCB content (news, publications, campaigns, events, etc.)
  • Information shared from our partners in safety
We will occasionally retweet content that we believe is of value to you.

The number of Tweets posted each business day will vary and may depend, for example, on the number of articles and publications and updates being released. Our goal is to share relevant and useful information.

Here are some things to note:

  • The WCB does not endorse the views expressed in Tweets posted by other users, and in no way verifies or confirms the accuracy of those Tweets. Retweets are not endorsements.
  • This account should not be contacted if you want to file a claim. Please visit our website for information, the necessary forms and appropriate contacts. Due to privacy regulations, claims cannot be discussed on Twitter.
  • We recognize the Internet is a 24/7 medium, and direct messages and @Replies are welcome anytime. However, posting and moderating will occur during regular office hours, Monday to Friday. Messages posted after business hours or on weekends and statutory holidays will be read as early as possible.
  • During emergency situations, we will provide additional Twitter coverage as required.
  • Twitter may occasionally be unavailable. WCB is not responsible for a lack of service caused by Twitter downtime.
