This year, the NLCSA has partnered with WorkplaceNL and the Occupational Health and Safety Division of the Department of Digital Government and Service NL to promote Fall Prevention Awareness Week. Fall Prevention Awareness week will take place from May 31st - June 4th, 2021 and our aim is to:

  • Raise awareness about fall hazards and how they can be eliminated or mitigated.
  • Promote a positive workplace culture relating to fall prevention.

From 2015-2019, 610 workers in the industry received medical aid or lost time from work and 4 workers lost their lives as a result of a fall. The costs associated with these 614 claims totaled more than $36.7 million.

These talks can help identify fall hazards as well as gaps in knowledge or training. Encourage workers to ask questions, raise concerns and be actively involved in fall prevention at the workplace. Ask what more you can do as an employer. Safety is a partnership.
