For health and safety purposes, we define a small business as one with 19 or fewer employees – no matter what your payroll is or how much annual revenue you have. 

The Small Business Safety Toolkit will help you:

  • put a health and safety system in place to protect your workers and yourself from injury and illness at work
  • learn your basic duties and responsibilities under the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations
  • understand how health and safety plays a role in the day-to-day operation of your business
