Safety & Health Week

May 1 - 6, 2023

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 2023’s Safety and Health Week is Back Safety.

Did you know that in 2022, back injuries made up nearly 1 in 10 reported workplace injury claims across the NWT and Nunavut? Back injuries are often life-altering, and WSCC wants to help employers across the north prevent them. 

WSCC’s got your back! We invite employers to request a courtesy focused inspection to identify back safety hazards at their workplace. Send us an email to reserve your spot today! And be sure to follow WSCC on social media for daily posts and free resources to help keep your workplace a back injury-free zone!
