Young workers, ages 25 and under, may be exposed to particular work environments and/or situations where their safety could be at risk. Safety training will make young workers aware of these situations, what to expect in these given work environments, and help reduce risk and injuries.
Your Construction Safety Association of Manitoba recognizes that to reduce the overall workplace injury rate in Manitoba, all workers need to be included in the steps to securing a safety standard across Manitoba, starting with a well-rounded education in safety training:

WHMIS 2015 (GHS)
Workplace Hazardous Materials Information Systems (WHMIS) is a national communication system dealing with controlled products. This includes three main components: labels, safety data sheets (SDS), and worker education. The system is an excellent process in providing employers and workers with information about the controlled products they work with on the job. WHMIS has aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS is a worldwide system.
S.C.O.T. – THE SAFETY PASS
Safety Construction Orientation Training (SCOT) – THE SAFETY PASS is an interactive, online-training course composed of 13 modules, each focused on a different fundamental aspect of construction site safety. THE SAFETY PASS is an excellent orientation program for any personnel planning on entering a construction site.
