Nova Scotia Workers Compensation Board
Preventing workplace injuries is about more than just writing a safety policy, forming a JOHS committee or providing first aid training.

It’s about making a commitment to your employees, customers, suppliers and community to continuously work towards a healthy and safe workplace.

The Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia encourages employers to demonstrate leadership and commitment to workplace health and safety by becoming WCB Safety Certified.

A WCB Safety Certified accreditation is issued to companies who have passed an audit of their health and safety management system. The audits are conducted by audit providers approved by the WCB to conduct WCB Safety Certified audits.

WCB Safety Certified accreditation demonstrates that your business takes safety seriously. That is why some procurement processes require it. Companies who want to bid on work for the Government of Nova Scotia – particularly construction work for the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal – are required to have a passed an audit of their health and safety management system by a WCB-approved audit provider. In recent years, a number of other major companies, universities and municipalities have adopted this requirement as part of their tendering processes.

A WCB Safety Certified audit measures the effectiveness of a company's health and safety management system across 22 elements.

Occupational Health & Educational Services (2002) Inc. is a WCB Safety Certified Approved Audit Provider that provides more than just audits. They are an excellent source for various other tools to help employers improve their safety performance.

Vapamore - Disinfect with the power of Steam!
> Steam cleaners disinfect and kill 99.9% of germs at a temperature between 175 °F and 212 °F. To kill the most germs, keep them in contact with steam for at least 3 minutes. That's long enough to get rid of germs, dust mites, mold, and viruses without using chemical sanitizers.

> Steam cleaning kills 99.9 percent of bacteria, germs and dust mites. This includes E. coli, Staph bacteria, Salmonella and other micro-organisms, surface molds, bacteria, viruses and other dirty things lurking around the house. Water has to be heated to 175 degrees for it to effectively sanitize.

> Unlike traditional mops, the mop head absorbs the dirt, and the heat of the steam is able to kill most of the bacteria and dust mites on the floor. It is not only a faster means of cleaning but a more sanitary one

> Steam cleaners can actually kill mold. ... And because steam actually penetrates the pores of the surface you are cleaning, it cleans deep to kill and remove mold, instead of just bleaching it invisible.

> Used under pressure, the steam acts like a natural disinfectant and degreaser. It kills germs and bacteria, dissolves grease and oil, cleanses thoroughly.

Steam cleaning with a high quality steam cleaner such as a Vapamore product is a critical component to solving classroom cleaning problems. This is because Vapamore professional-grade steam cleaner heat water to such a high degree that it is actually capable of cleaning up to 99% of bacteria when proper cleaning technique is administered. That means that children are never exposed to harsh and harmful chemicals because only water is used to clean and disinfect which allows cleaning to be done throughout the day whenever necessary. Additionally, steam cleaning can be used on a wide variety of surfaces including all of the surfaces we previously mentioned. That means that only one tool is needed, and no chemical cleaning products are needed, to completely clean and disinfect a classroom. After the initial investment in a steam cleaner, classrooms will no longer constantly need to replenish a multitude of chemical cleaning products and tools – they will only need their steam cleaner for the bulk of cleaning tasks throughout the day. The EPA recommends steam cleaning in the classroom and elaborates on how useful and effective it is, “ Steam cleaners can be used to sanitize, deodorize, and remove grease, dirt, and product residues thoroughly and quickly without chemicals. They can be used on many surfaces, including bathroom fixtures, floors and countertops, carpeting, and upholstery. Dry vapor steam cleaners use super-heated low moisture steam – no chemicals – for disinfecting, sanitizing, and cleaning surfaces. They are very effective and approved for food contact as well asother surfaces including carpets and upholstery. They are one of the most effective ways to remove bacteria that have formed a biofilm.”
