Rebate Program reduces the risk of workplace injury and illness by rewarding
employers who have developed and maintained meaningful workplace safety and
health management systems. The effectiveness of an employer's safety and health
management system is measured through their participation in an industry-based
safety program that meets the standards of the SAFE Work Certified Program.
SAFE Work Manitoba
administers the Prevent Rebate Program, determines employer eligibility and
issues the prevention rebate. Certified employers who have met all criteria are
eligible for the prevention rebate.
can typically expect to receive their prevention rebate the month following
their certification anniversary date.

Once certified, an employer must meet the following eligibility criteria to receive the prevention rebate:
Please see the Prevention Rebate Policy for more information.
Eligible employers will receive a rebate of the greatest of 15 per cent of their premium or $3,000, to a maximum of 75 per cent of their premium.
For example, an eligible employer who paid $4,000 in premiums for a given year would receive a $3,000 rebate, representing 75 per cent of their premiums. An eligible employer who paid $100,000 in premiums for a given year, would receive a rebate of $15,000, or 15 per cent of their premiums.
The premium used to calculate the prevention rebate is the net amount after any safety levy has been collected or safety program discount applied on behalf of an industry-based safety program.
The rebate will be calculated using the actual payroll associated with the rebate eligibility period and will not be based on estimated payroll. The year of the rebate eligibility period start date is the actual payroll year used to calculate the prevention rebate. For example, if an employer's rebate eligibility period is October 10, 2017 to October 9, 2018, the actual payroll for 2017 is used to calculate the prevention rebate.
