SITE SPECIFIC HEALTH AND SAFETY PLANS

COMPANY SAFETY PROGRAM NOVA SCOTIA
An organization’s occupational health and safety program contains the elements that make it possible to realize its policy objectives. Each program will be unique to the company that develops it, but some elements are needed to make them comply with the laws and to meet general health and safety standards in Nova Scotia. The Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Workforce Development adheres to a policy it calls the Internal Responsibility System, which means that, while managers and supervisors have significant responsibility for workplace safety, individual employees also share in that responsibility.
The Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act states that employers, contractors, and constructors who regularly employ five or more people must develop an occupational health and safety policy.An organization regularly employing 20 or more employees must develop an written occupational health and safety program.
