Health & Safety

Health & Safety

Occupational health and safety (OHS) laws protect workers from injuries and illnesses. WSCC’s Prevention Services works with employers to ensure they comply with those laws to keep their workers safe.

The safety legislation in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut allows safety officers and inspectors of mines to ensure safe workplace laws are being followed.

Here you will find OHS information to help you comply with these safe workplace laws. You will also find information on OHS education, events, OHS links and recent prosecutions. 

Report an incident

If you witness a hazardous situation, the WSCC encourages you to use WSCC Connect to report unsafe work.

When an incident occurs in your workplace, whether someone is injured or not, you need to report it to the WSCC.
