Safety and Health Guide for Manitoba Farms

Safety and Health Guide for Manitoba Farms

This guide has been developed in cooperation by the following partners: Workplace Safety and Health; Keystone Agricultural Producers; Manitoba Canola Growers; Canadian Federation of Independent Business and the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba.

Most Manitoba farms employ ten or fewer people, including the farm owner and family members. This Safety and Health Guide for Farms has been created specifically for Manitoba farms where the total number of persons employed is less than 20. This includes self-employed farmers with no external workers. The intent is that you use this publication as a tool to:

• Put a safety and health system in place in order to protect your workers, family members and yourself from injury and illness at work
• Understand that safety and health is a vital part of the day to day operations of your farm business
• Learn your basic duties and responsibilities under Manitoba’s Workplace Safety and Health Act, Regulation or Codes of Practice.
