Safety for Supervisors

The University of Manitoba must ensure that all employees in supervisory roles receive training on their duties under Manitoba's Workplace Safety and Health Act. The "Safety for Supervisors" training resource is available in three formats to assist supervisors in understanding their responsibilities. 

In order to demonstrate the completion of the program, all supervisors are required to complete and pass a short multiple choice test on the duties of supervisors under Manitoba Health and Safety legislation. You are welcome to challenge the test at any time - a link to the test is provided below.

If you encounter any difficulty accessing resources or taking the required test, please contact EHS at EHSO@umanitoba.ca or 204-474-9031.
