Safety & Health Week

Safety and Health Week is celebrated annually across North America during the first week of May to highlight the importance of preventing workplace injury and illness. 

WSCC’s topic of focus for 2024’s Safety and Health Week is Ergonomics.

In support of Safety and Health Week, the WSCC is offering focused inspections for ergonomics to interested employers throughout May!

Ergonomic-related injuries were responsible for approximately 20% of all injury claims in the NWT and Nunavut between 2021 and 2023. The WSCC wants to support employers to help reduce these types of injuries. A focused inspection by a WSCC Safety Officer will help employers and workers identify, control, and eliminate ergonomic hazards at their worksite. 

To request your focused ergonomics inspection, email today! And be sure to visit our Safety Spotlight page for information and resources on ergonomics.
