SiteReadyMB

SiteReadyMB is an interactive, general orientation course designed specifically to prepare individuals who want to upgrade their skills or are preparing to enter or re-enter Manitoba's construction industry.

Welcome to Manitoba’s NEW comprehensive construction site safety orientation program! 

SiteReadyMB builds stronger construction sites in many aspects:

  • Saves training time for employers.
  • Boosts workers’ knowledge and resumes.
  • Reduces incidents from inexperience on site.
  • Prepares interprovincial workers for Manitoban sites.
  • Builds confidence for better work.

The program focuses on Manitoba’s legislation and construction industry and is designed to deliver vital safety information in a convenient, easily accessible format — users can learn at their own pace using any internet-connected device. Upon completion, participants will receive both a SiteReadyMB training certificate and a WHMIS training certificate.

Join us on November 22 at 12 p.m. for a virtual lunch-and-learn to learn more about SiteReadyMB.

Employers

As an employer, SiteReadyMB is a ready-to-use orientation program that will help you meet multiple obligations under the duties of employers in Manitoba’s Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Act and Regulation:

  • Sections 4(2)(b), which specifies that employers must provide information, instruction, and training to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of all workers.
  • Section 4(2)(c) and (h), which specifies that supervisors must be familiar with safety or health hazards and WSH Act and Regulation; and must competent because of knowledge or training.
  • Section 4(4), 40(13), and 41(8), which specifies the employer’s duty to provide safety and health training before performing work (ie: orientation); and training of committee members and worker safety representatives.
  • Section 7(3), which specifies a prime contractor must ensure every person complies with the WSH Act and Regulation; and to coordinate, organize and oversee performance of all work.
  • Section 7.4(5)(g)(i) and (h), which specify criteria for the evaluation and selection of employers/persons involved in work and the plan for training of workers/supervisors in safe work practices.
  • Part 35.3(1), (2) and (3), which specify an employer’s requirement to conduct WHMIS training

SiteReadyMB course content is always under review by the safety personnel at CSAM, ensuring that information is always fresh, up-to-date, and relevant.
