Workplace Safety and Health Week Event Ideas

As part of Safety and Health Week, many Manitoba employers develop safety activities in their workplace as a way to build prevention awareness with their employees and the general public. Showing your commitment to safety and health during Safety and Health Week, does not need to complicated or expensive. The events are meant as a way to revitalize workplace commitment to safety in a fun way. Event ideas have included: 

  • ​launching a recognition program to reward health and safety suggestions
  • creating a company safety calendar with reminders and tips
  • conducting workplace safety games (keeping in mind public health protocol) throughout the week.
During Safety and Health Week, share you activities on social media using the hashtag #SafetyAndHealthWeek. You can find social media images and posters for your workplace here.
