The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba has developed a series of 15-minute tailgate training presentations which are available for contractor use and duplication. This is a proven and effective method of conducting training sessions - especially for those who lack the confidence to teach. Currently, the following individual programs are available (free of charge).

These topics are designed to complement CSAM’s existing and future training programs. The prime objective of this resource is to provide quality information and generalized practices to construction employers and employees; reducing both human and financial costs in the construction industry.
