WorkSafeNB has a legal obligation to review the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act and its corresponding regulations every five years. This year marks the first review under this obligation.
WorkSafeNB’s board of directors is proposing changes to the OHS Act, the Administration Regulation 84-26 and General Regulation 91-191. While many of these proposals focus primarily on housekeeping items, the board is particularly interested in a proposal that would require employers to maintain JHSC meeting minutes for a specified amount of time, rather than requiring JHSCs to send meeting minutes to WorkSafeNB.
We believe the proposed amendment warrants consultation with New Brunswickers. The review will run until September 8, 2022.
Let’s work together to build a safer New Brunswick.
