Safety And Health Week


Safety and Health Week (May 1-6) is an opportune time to focus on the importance of injury and illness prevention in the workplace and at home.

One of the most important aspects of Safety and Health Week is awareness and we want every workplace and community to have a hand in making the week a success.

To take part, many Manitoba employers develop safety activities in their workplace to build prevention awareness. These activities are meant to revitalize workplace commitment to safety in a fun way. Some ideas include:

  • Launching a recognition program to reward health and safety suggestions
  • Conducting workplace safety games through the week
  • Creating a company safety calendar with reminders and tips

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) will be holding virtual activities to celebrate Safety and Health Week. For more information or to register for a free session, please click here.
