NEW: OHS APP

We're proud to announce the launch of our first app!

Developed in conjunction with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), the OHS app makes finding workplace health and safety information more accessible to Northern employers and workers.

Organized by topic, the app provides you with a summary of information, quotes the relevant legislation, and includes a list of resources. Share the information you find easily with your coworkers and employees.

The app is available as a free download in both English and French. Download it once, and use it regardless of Internet connection.

Download the WSCC OHS App - Guide to OHS Legislation from the App Store or Google Play today, and let us know what you think!

CHECK YOUR PAYROLL
THE TIME FOR REVISIONS IS NOW

Employers, now is a good time to review the payroll estimate you provided for 2017. This week, the WSCC sent out payroll revisions to all employers, so expect to see them in your mailbox soon.

Reporting significant changes in your payroll estimate throughout the year is the easiest way to avoid penalties for underestimating. To report changes, visit the Report or Revise Payroll e-Service on WSCC Connect and follow the instructions.

If you have any questions on revising your payroll, contact Employer Services in the Northwest Territories at 1-800-661-0792 and in Nunavut at 1-877-404-4407.
