As an employer, you play an important role in preventing workplace injuries and promoting a safe and healthy workplace. In fact, under the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHS), you have a legal obligation to properly inform, instruct and supervise your employees and to do everything you reasonably can to protect them.
Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety requirements differ depending on the number of employees employed by a business. This includes multiple locations.
