It has been recognized in other industries that
working collectively on issues related to safety has assisted in the
building of a safety culture among employees and employers. The end result
has been fewer accidents/injuries and a reduction in workers’ compensation
The mandate of the safety association is to enhance safety, and to make
the industry more attractive for new employees and to keep existing
employees safe and healthy. The association’s work will help to prevent
accidents and injuries, along with a reduction in workers’ compensation
rates for the Nova Scotia fishing industry.
