Protecting Yourself - Your Responsibilities

Staying safe at work isn't always as easy as it sounds.  Unfortunately, not every place is safe, and it's not something that you can take for granted.

As a key player in this game, you've got responsibilities.

All New Brunswick employees, regardless of age, industry or occupation, are responsible for:

  • Following the safety rules and regulations.
  • Asking for the health and safety orientation and job-specific training they’re entitled to.
  • Asking questions if they have them.
  • Reporting incidents, near misses and workplace hazards.
  • Reporting unsafe working conditions.
  • Wearing the proper protective equipment.
  • Doing the job safely.
  • Watching out for their own well-being and that of others.
  • Co-operating with the Joint Health and Safety Committee or Safety Representative at the workplace.
  • Co-operating with WorkSafeNB and Health and Safety Officers.

Even if your job description doesn't include it, you've got to consider safety an important part of your responsibilities at work.
