  • Health and Safety Training for Indigenous Communities, by Ulnooweg Development Group, shares examples of relevant health and safety training topics for Indigenous communities and approaches for hazard and risk management and interventions.
  • The SUCCEED program, from WorkSafeNB, provides immediate care and support to workers with a traumatic psychological injury.
