Nova Scotia Provincial Workplace Regulations

As an employer, you must manage all aspects of your business. This includes looking after the health and safety of each person in your workplace. Managing occupational health and safety is just as important as managing finances when it comes to your bottom line. Health and safety is important to everyone. It’s not only the law – it’s the right thing to do. And it makes good business sense.

(TIP: An ACT is about the PEOPLE in the workplace, a regulation is about the workplace)
