Stakeholder engagement provides WorkSafeNB with opportunities to
better understand stakeholders' priorities and their opinions, and
to learn from their experience and expertise.
We consult with stakeholders on issues that have a significant impact on stakeholder communities through a number of means, outlined below.

Policy Review Consultation
The board of directors governs WorkSafeNB and annually sets its
policy agenda through its strategic planning and risk assessment
process. The board has established a disciplined approach to policy
development and evaluation through Policy 41-004 – Policy
Development and Evaluation. The results of policy consultation
are included in thoroughly researched policy options, which are
then considered by the board of directors.
We welcome public comment on any policy issue being consulted on with stakeholders. A summary of the comments received during this consultation process will be posted here for your information. Below, you will find instructions on how to provide your comments.

While legislative issues can be raised at any time, the board determines its priorities and focus for the year during its annual strategic planning and risk assessment process in March and April.
Legislative amendments include both changes to existing legislation or regulations, and also the development of new legislation or regulations. If you would like to bring forward your personal legislative concern, or you represent an association, please submit your legislative proposal in writing to:
Office of the President and CEO, and Chairperson
Attn: Executive Assistant – President and CEO and Chairperson
1 Portland Street
P.O. Box 160
Saint John, N.B. E2L 3X9
You may also email your proposal to: email@example.com.
Your written proposal should contain a description of the legislative issue and why it presents a problem, changes you think might solve the problem, and your reason for the suggested change. Click here for a form that outlines how a legislative amendment proposal could look.
