NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) spoke to the committee conducting a statutory review of the province’s Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Act today. The NDP Leader addressed several issues in her presentation, including the controversial use of private consultants to investigate the validity of claimants.

 

Newfoundland and Labrador needs more than a statement on workplace health and safety, says NDP Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission critic Dale Kirby (MHA, St. John’s North). The province’s workplaces need action – and a good place to start would be with the concerns expressed in the most recent Auditor General’s report.

 

NDP Labour Critic Dale Kirby (MHA, St. John’s North) says he will be closely watching the upcoming statutory review of the legislation governing the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission. His main hope is that serious issues facing the Commission’s ability to protect injured workers in the future will be adequately addressed.
