“I am both proud and excited to acknowledge Safety Services New Brunswick’s (SSNB) 50 years of service and invite everyone to join us to celebrate the many milestones and successes that we have achieved. Safety Services New Brunswick has evolved in so many impactful ways since its founding in 1967 as the New Brunswick Safety Council Inc.; however, one thing has remained the same, “SAFETY.” For 50 years, SSNB has been relentlessly committed to the health and safety of New Brunswickers and the communities in which we all work, live and play through education, training, consultation and advocacy. SSNB will continue to strive to make our communities safer, every day.”
