Some of Manitoba's
requirements for workplace safety and health have changed to be consistent with
regulations across all provinces and territories in Canada. Adopting common
standards will help make safety simpler, especially for businesses that operate
across multiple jurisdictions. The changes affect requirements for first aid
kits, head protection, eye and face protection, hearing protection, foot
protection, and personal floatation devices and life jackets. Manitoba has
become the first province to harmonize regulations in these areas.
