The WCB and SafeWork Manitoba launched the latest SAFE Work campaign—Tie One On—just in time for summer roofing work. The campaign reminds employers and workers to always remember these guidelines for work at heights:
- Workers require fall protection when working at heights of three metres or more or heights lower than three meters if working near a dangerous area
- Workers must be trained and follow safe work procedures
- Surface openings must be securely covered and the covers labelled
- Body harnesses must fit properly and be in good condition.
