Fewer New Brunswickers Getting Hurt At Work

Getting hurt on the job can be a worker's worst fear, and fewer New Brunswickers are seeing that fear become a reality. 

That's according to the 2013 report for WorkSafe NB. President Gerard Adams tells CHSJ News the partnership between employers, workers and his organization is creating positive results. Adams says educating people on prevention is a large part of what they do and they devote a lot of time, energy and resources to developing the culture of workplace safety. 

He says the report also shows the province has one of the lowest assessment rates in Canada and the lowest in Atlantic Canada which is good for the business community.
