The National Alliance for Safety & Health in Healthcare (NASHH) was established in February 2016 to reduce and eliminate workplace injuries on the frontline of health and seniors care in Canada. Comprised of seven provincial senior care safety associations* representing nurses, care aides and other care providers, we support workplace safety best practices and fostering a culture of safety in healthcare with a common focus on long-term and home care.
We represent healthcare employers with an annual budget of over $7 billion. Canada’s growing long-term care sector has some of the highest workplace injury rates in the country – in some provinces, more than four-times the rate of other sectors. We are ready to collaborate with governments, health authorities and other stakeholders to address safety issues in hospitals, long-term care facilities and home care.
