The WCB and SAFE Work Manitoba are proud to partner with a number of province-wide safety programs, including:
Industry-based safety programs (IBSPs) work closely with organizations to guide and support them in their safety and health efforts. IBSPs cover a number of key Manitoba industries, and more are in development. See a list of current IBSPs by clicking here.
SAFE Momentum is a partnership program that invites Manitoba organizations and corporations to become corporate partners and brand sponsors of SAFE Work Manitoba.
The program began in 2007 as a way for corporate and organizational leaders to support SAFE Work Manitoba's commitment to achieve a culture of health and safety in Manitoba. Through an investment in a marketing campaign (also supported by the WCB and Global), organizations can demonstrate their commitment to the safety of their workers and to all Manitobans, ensuring a safer province in which to work and to live.

Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. Junior Achievement programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.
The WCB and SAFE Work Manitoba support Junior Achievement by presenting an award to the student that best incorporates workplace safety into their business plan. This partnership promotes safety and social responsibility in the workplace for future generations.
North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week focuses on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace and raises understanding and awareness of safety and health issues among employees and the general public. The annual NAOSH Awards are presented to safety-minded workplaces in various categories, including best overall entry, most innovative and best representation of theme, based on the safety activities held in the workplaces during NAOSH Week. The WCB and SAFE Work Manitoba support NAOSH Week and the annual NAOSH Awards.
We know workplace injuries are preventable if we make SAFE Work a way of life.
That’s why we believe in creating SAFE workers for life and using a multitude of mediums to promote the SAFE message.
The WCB and SAFE Work Manitoba are proud to offer partnership opportunities to youth sport programs, which we believe will expose the community to SAFE Work messages and get them thinking about injury prevention. When families are kept safe from workplace hazards and injuries, they are able to participate in the activities they love.
Community centres that target youth audiences and promote youth sport programs are eligible for the program. Partnerships will be considered for banners, program ads, rink boards, posters, online ads and other similar initiatives.
If you believe in promoting injury prevention and creating SAFE Workers for life and would like to apply for the community partnership program, fill in and submit an application form. All support requests will be reviewed and evaluated at the end of each month. Organizations will be notified of the results of the evaluation by the second week of the month following submission of their applications.
