Communicable disease prevention advice from WorkSafeNB

As workers and their families are increasingly indoors, WorkSafeNB wants to remind employers of their ongoing obligation to provide a healthy and safe workplace.

For many employers, this may include preparing and applying a communicable disease prevention plan.

A communicable disease prevention plan considers risks in your particular workplace. It determines appropriate measures to reduce those risks and helps ensure all employees are aware of their responsibilities.

WorkSafeNB has prepared a four-step process for preparing a communicable disease prevention plan.
