About NS Health and Safety Charter

History of the Charter

On October 8, 2015, 30 CEOs and Senior Executives from across Nova Scotia signed a landmark document, the NS CEO Health & Safety Leadership Charter. The Charter is the first of its kind in Nova Scotia’s History.

The Charter was introduced at the Inaugural Meeting Conference held at the offices of Nova Scotia Power at a conference attended by many of the province’s top leaders from all business sectors including manufacturing, retail, education, and service.

The Charter is a public declaration to employees, customers and the communities in which the organizations are located that the CEO’s value health, safety and wellness. Signing the Charter demonstrates a commitment to providing a prevention-based workplace culture.

Since its inception the Charter now has over 130 member organizations across the province.
