In order to inform development of the Workplace Safety Action Plan, Research Power Incorporated was engaged to conduct an environmental scan, as well as a review of the current state of workplace health and safety in Nova Scotia’s health and community services sectors. The result was a comprehensive report, Workplace Health and Safety in the Health and Community Services Sectors: Evidence-based Best Practices and Assessment of Current State in Nova Scotia.
