The province has launched a new app that will allow you to easily access workplace safety information, such as fall protection, personal protective equipment and fire extinguishers.

Nova SAFE was created to help workers and employers remain safe at work and comply with regulations.

“Working safely is everyone’s responsibility, and we are taking steps to make it as easy as possible,” said Jill Balser, Minister of Labour, Skills and Immigration. “With the launch of Nova SAFE, we’re putting safety information at the fingertips of Nova Scotians. This allows them to access safety information from any type of work site when they need it.”

Nova SAFE is modelled after safety sites created in other jurisdictions and developed by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.

The site is designed to be user-friendly and includes plain-language information on workplace topics and provincial legislation. Nova Scotians can also call 1-800-9Labour with any safety-related questions.

Nova SAFE can be easily installed on any iOS or Android device by visiting https://www.novasafe.ca/
