All farms in Manitoba fall under safety legislation, with the vast majority falling under Manitoba’s WSH Act and Regulation
Safety Legislation applies on your farm. Remember that safety is not optional – it’s the law.
Most Manitoba farms employ anywhere from 1-10 workers and family members, including seasonal and temporary hires. Over 90 per cent of Manitoba farms are owned and operated by families.
As a farm owner, you know that your workers and family members are your number one resource. You care about what happens to them.
Compliance with legislation is one way to ensure you manage your risk and that all family members, employees, contractors, and visitors to the farm are protected.
The Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health Act and Regulation has applied to farms in Manitoba since 1977. There are no exemptions from safety and health legislation for Manitoba farms.
