To help prevent the nearly 5000 injuries each year to young workers between the ages of 15 and 24 years of age, SAFE Work Manitoba is encouraging supervisors and young workers to make the SAFE Work Commitment and create safer workplaces.
Making workplaces safer is a shared responsibility between young workers and supervisors. To help start an open and respectful dialogue, SAFE Work Manitoba has created a kit with resources such as posters, stickers and information that can act as visual reminders to stay safe at work.
The kit is free. All you have to do, as a supervisor or young worker, is let us know that you would like one by contacting us.
The kit includes a SAFE Work Commitment form which highlights workers' and supervisors' rights and responsibilities when it comes to safety at work, and encourages both groups to sign it as a show of their commitment to making their workplaces safer.
