CHBA-NL Residential Construction Industry Prime Consultations

ATTENTION: Developers, Builders, Renovators, Subtrades and Suppliers

Are you saving money through PRIME?

The Canadian Home Builders Association Newfoundland and Labrador (CHBA NL) invites you to attend the Residential Construction Industry PRIME Consultations, taking place throughout the month of September.

The CHBA NL would like to help employers within the residential construction industry save money and have healthier and safer workplaces.

First presented in 2005, Workplace NL introduced the Prevention and Return-to-Work Insurance Management for Employers/Employees (PRIME) program. The program was designed to encourage employers and workers to develop effective occupational health and safety (OHS) and return-to-work programs.

Many employers in the province are reaping the financial benefits of PRIME, and investing this money into improving their workplace health and safety. Yet, the Canadian Home Builders Association NL (CHBA NL) recognizes companies within the residential construction industry face specific challenges when accessing PRIME. Through the next few weeks, the Association would like to hear from employers and help them save money while offering healthier and safer workplaces.

This consultation will provide an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of PRIME as well as discuss how the program can be more responsive to your needs as an employer working in the residential construction industry.

This is your opportunity to tell us what is working, what isn’t working. Don’t worry if you have never participated in PRIME, by attending this session you will learn and so will we.
