NP NS flagNova Scotia Health & Safety Leadership Charter

 

Intent 

This Charter represents a commitment from leaders in Nova Scotia to the continuous growth of a positive workplace safety culture. It is founded on the principle that the effective management of health, safety, and wellness is essential to the operation of a successful business and the long term success of our province. By supporting this Charter, leaders commit to share best practices and together improve the health and safety performance in Nova Scotia with the belief that a safer province is a more productive and prosperous province. 

Mission

Engage senior leaders in Nova Scotia in advancing Nova Scotia as the safest place to work and live in Canada. 

Principles

By signing this charter, I commit to:
  1. The principle that nothing is more important than the health, safety and well-being of employees, contractors, visitors and the community. 
  2. Integrate health and safety into business strategies and processes, and to recognize that good health and safety performance supports good business results. 
  3. Strive for continuous health and safety improvement and to provide the leadership and internal capacity to make this happen. 
  4. Create and enhance a culture that enables all employees to participate and work collaboratively in developing, promoting and improving health and safety at work and at home 
  5. Participate within a health and safety leadership learning community in Nova Scotia, by sharing information and best practices, with the goal of continuously improving health and safety strategies, programming and performance. 
I support and will take action towards achieving the Intent and Principles of the Nova Scotia Health and Safety Leadership Charter.
