New/young workers are naturally at a higher risk when entering particular work environments and/or situations without prior work experience.
The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba is here to help high schools in Manitoba get ahead of the curve by offering free youth training programs that will educate students on different types of work environments, how to effectively identify and control hazards with the proper tools and reduce risk and injuries in the workplace:

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 (S.C.O.T) – 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.
High school teachers in Manitoba can register students for WHMIS 2015 and S.C.O.T – THE SAFETY PASS free of charge. Contact Marla Warnick at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the registration information.
