Safety Program development: Our Approach to a safety management system.

Our approach to Safety Program development employs a 4-phase system.

Phase 1 | Phase 2 | Phase 3 | Phase 4

We take our members step-by-step through each phase to develop a complete safety management system. Our Safety Advisors work closely with each member throughout the journey from Phase 1 to 4, providing guidance using our program guides and support and helping each member progress at their own pace.

Program guides
Our program guides make it easy to create policies, procedures, inspections, and forms.

Time Commitment
We never impose a time commitment on members, as they move forward at their own pace and schedule control is maintained in order not to overwhelm members and interfere with business operations. Each member company will have a dedicated Safety Advisor to provide full support at every step.

Stage of safety program
No matter whether you are in the starting phase of developing a safety program or you only need some support and assistance with finalization and implementation…We can help. Our members receive full safety documentation guidance from our Safety Advisors through policy and procedure draft reviews with recommendations and implementation strategies.

Many of our members have successfully achieved Safe Work Certification through this program, Click here to see a list of all our SAFE Work Certified companies.

Upon completing all four phases, members have the essential elements for an effective safety program. Once a system gap is completed and corrected, you are ready for Safe Work Certification and on your way to receiving a rebate on your WCB premiums.


Gap Analysis

See how your safety program measures up to provincial standards and identify any “gaps” in your program before certification.


SAFE Work Certification

SAFE Work Certified is Manitoba’s safety and health certification standard. It helps make workplaces safer and provides a financial reward to employers that take proactive steps to prevent workplace injuries and illness.
