SAFE Work Certified Starts with YOU!

IPAM Breakfast Meeting

Join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, November 3, 2017 for an interesting session as outlined below:

SAFE Work Certified with YOU!

Your actions or inactions have a profound impact on workplace safety, productivity and cost.  Why not walk the talk, set a positive example to motivate others, and join hundreds of other Manitoba workplaces in their efforts to make our province the safest place to live and work?

Attend this presentation and learn the steps involved in achieving and maintaining certification! The SAFE Work Certified Program is currently being delivered through a network of industry based safety programs/associations designated as Certifying Partners.  Certifying Partners provide the necessary information, support and training to assist employers in obtaining certification. Beginning in 2018, employers who meet eligibility requirements will qualify for a prevention rebate based on their WCB assessment premium.

The SAFE Work Certified Program utilizes a unique and customized, performance-based audit approach which differs from most traditional compliance based auditing techniques.  It also requires the completion of a safety culture assessment which is used to support the evaluation of the SAFE Work Certified Program, safety culture in Manitoba, and promote continuous improvement.
