Safety Management System

A comprehensive Safety Management System (SMS) ensures the health and safety of employees.  The SMS helps organizations proactively identify and control hazards.  A workplace safety culture cannot be achieved without an effective SMS.

AWARE-NS has developed a Safety Management System (SMS) of 13 elements, complete with program content, tools, templates and forms that will support the needs of the Nova Scotia Health and Community Services sectors.
