March 17: Beware of Safety Scam


The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board warned companies that a group calling itself Safety Services has phoned businesses claiming there are new regulations requiring weekly safety meetings to be documented on a special form. The caller tells the company that if it provides banking, payroll and credit card information, Safety Services will send it the new forms, warning that failure to comply could result in a fine. But the call is a scam. There are no such new regulations and the Board doesn’t ask for payroll or sensitive banking information over the phone. If you get any such calls, report them to 1-888-495-8501.
