SAFE Work Certification
SAFE Work Certified is Manitoba’s safety and health certification standard that helps make workplaces safer and provides a financial reward to employers that take proactive steps to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. SAFE Work Certified is built around the safety essentials of leadership commitment, hazard identification and risk control, and worker participation.
We received our SAFE Work Certification on July 5th 2018. The biggest benefit has been a heightened awareness for safety by our leadership team and a renewed commitment to safety. Made Safe (our certifying partner) has helped us create a solid foundation through the improved safety program, which we are able to build on to achieve a safe work place without injuries. Gaining certification has given us the opportunity to review current practices and processes, and to continuously improve safety across all levels of the organization.
