FREE YOUTH TRAINING


Did you know that youth account for 15 per cent of workplace injuries in Manitoba?

Young workers are the future of our workforce, however they’re at high risk of injury because they have less experience and training on the job. Training students in safety while they’re in high school prepares them for future employment.

Education helps to reduce risk and injuries, and your Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) is here to help include youth in the efforts to reduce workplace incidents — our children deserve to go to work and come home safely every day. That’s why CSAM offers a variety of FREE resources to educate high school students on workplace safety and health.
