COSP Long Term Care

Why Now?

The Long Term Care sector continues to pay some of the highest WCB-NS premiums in the province at $5.12 per $100 of assessable payroll, which is the second highest in the health and social service sector. These numbers suggest that fewer financial resources will be available to the sector to establish and/or sustain an effective injury prevention system into the future. Given that we also know the safety of our residents is directly correlated with the safety of the provider, we must be diligent in our pursuit of continuous improvement of workplace health and safety. Currently there is a lot of good work happening in each and every organization in Nova Scotia, but we now have an opportunity to leverage our collective knowledge to ensure we reverse this trend together.
