Workers

Occupational Health and Safety Awareness Survey

The Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency, Department of Finance, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador will be conducting an Occupational Health and Safety Awareness survey on behalf of WorkplaceNL during January and February. This survey will assess the level of health and safety awareness in workers and supervisors in our province.

The survey results will help us to develop programs to address gaps in health and safety education and identify priority areas that require attention. Our goal is to work with workers, supervisors and employers in our province to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.

The injury rate in our province is currently at 1.6. We recognize that further reductions in the injury rate will be increasingly challenging to achieve. Your feedback, via the survey, will provide us guidance to focus our efforts.

Your individual comments and answers are confidential and will not be provided on an individual basis to WorkplaceNL. We will only be provided with a final report of the overall survey results.

Should you receive a call from the Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency, we would appreciate you taking the time to answer the questions.

If you have any questions about the survey, please call 709.778.1000 or 1.800.563.9000.
