Policy Purpose

The SAFE Work Certified Program (SWCP) is a workplace health and safety program administered by SAFE Work Manitoba, a division of the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) responsible for prevention programs and services. Under this program, employers can apply for SAFE Work Certification upon demonstrating their compliance with prescribed workplace safety and health requirements. 
While SAFE Work Manitoba oversees the SWCP, the program is delivered, on an operational level, by a network of Certifying Partners (CPs). CPs are safety associations authorized by SWMB to offer certification to employers. 
SAFE Work Certification is a necessary condition of eligibility for the Prevention Rebate Program. The SWCP and the Prevention Rebate Program work together to encourage a culture of workplace safety in Manitoba. 
This policy outlines the goals of the SWCP, the principles underlying it, and the framework under which it operates
