Over the last decade, the provincial time loss injury rate has fallen from a high of 4.2 time loss injuries per 100 workers to 2.9 – a drop of 31 per cent over the period.
How else can you tell SAFE Work is working? Here are a few examples:
- Time loss injuries in Manitoba's construction sector are down to their lowest point in 10 years. In 2008, there were 2,115 time loss injuries in the sector; by the end of 2018, the number was down to 1,745.
- Manufacturing injuries are down by half over the same period. That represents almost 2,000 fewer injuries.
- Sprains and strains have dropped by 44 per cent.
Changing the culture of safety takes a team effort. With six IBSPs, employers and workers joining forces with SAFE Work Manitoba, injury numbers will drop even lower. When we work together, SAFE Work…works!
