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 rates.

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.
