February 16, 2023 – Workers Compensation Board of PEI: The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) has recently published four (4) new safety guides to support Island employers in keeping their workers and their workplaces safe. The guides and complementary resources are available for download on the WCB website wcb.pe.ca.
“We are very pleased to offer these four (4) new resources to Island employers to support their workplace safety practices,” said Danny Miller, WCB’s Director of Occupational Health and Safety.
“Some topics are industry specific while others are more general in nature and affect workers and employers across industries. The Guide for Communicable Disease Prevention is an example of a topical guide destined for more than one industry. If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic taught us many lessons, including the fact that communicable diseases are present not just in health care settings.”
The new resources, in alphabetical order:
- Developing a Hearing Conservation Program
- Developing a Respirator Program
- Guide for Communicable Disease Prevention
- Guide for Employers of Young Workers
