Snowblower Hazard Alert

With more snow in the forecast for this week, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) reminds Islanders to work safely when using snow removal equipment.

The WCB encourages all snowblower operators, at work and at home, to reduce their risk of injury by taking the precautions in the WCB Snowblower Hazard Alert. This alert was developed following a workplace incident in December 2013, in which a snowblower operator suffered a serious and preventable hand injury.

For more information about workplace safety, visit the Safe Workplaces section at or contact the WCB at 902-368-5680 or 1-800-237-5049 (toll free in Atlantic Canada).
