Starting April 1, 2019, all New Brunswick businesses have obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act on anti-violence and harassment prevention. Our goal is to make compliance easy for you. Below we have highlighted the requirements for all businesses.
Please note that in this new legislation the definition of “place of employment” includes anywhere that work is conducted by one or more employees and includes project sites and vehicles. The definition of “employee” includes not only those employed but also anyone at the place of employment for any purpose and will include consultants, customers, visitors and subcontractors.
Having a workplace that is violence and harassment free is for the safety of everyone.
We are here to help! If you have further questions or would like copies of the templates mentioned above contact business resources at 1 888 234-2232 or [email protected]
