Your responsibilities

The New Brunswick Occupational Health and Safety Act sets out a variety of employee responsibilities designed to help ensure a healthy and safe work environment. Employees must:

  • Comply with the OHS Act and regulations.
  • Conduct themselves in a safe manner and not put themselves or others at risk.
  • Report any workplace hazards.
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
  • Co-operate with the joint health and safety committee (JHSC) or safety representatives.
  • Co-operate with WorkSafeNB and its health and safety officers.

If you fail to comply with these responsibilities, a WorkSafeNB health and safety officer may write an order requiring you to do so. Failure to comply with an order of this nature could result in prosecution and fines.
