Safety for Supervisors

The "Safety for Supervisors" training resource is available in three formats to assist supervisors in understanding their responsibilities. 

In order to complete 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. Instructions to access the test are below under "Required Test".

If you encounter any difficulty accessing resources or taking the required test, please contact EHS at or 204-474-6633.

Because of current COVID-19 restrictions, there will not be any in-person training.  All training will be done online until further notice. 

All participants should have the necessary technology to participate in an online meeting - for example a computer with internet and a webcam with microphone, etc.  Please contact Information Services and Technology (IST) for any questions about the setup and operation of your technology.
