Safety is the highest priority of Habitat Manitoba for all volunteers, staff, sponsors and trades on our build sites. We follow equally strict safety procedures in our office and ReStore outlets. As part of the Habitat commitment to safety, we employ a full time, trained Safety Coordinator who works closely with a safety consulting firm and the Government of Manitoba’s Workplace Safety and Health Division (WSHD). Safety is everyone’s business and HFHM fully embraces the province’s SAFE Work program. The program is available online here.



The Habitat construction department attends safety seminars put on by the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba. As well, Habitat Manitoba ensures that all volunteers complete pre-build safety training courses. Habitat appreciates the time and respects the knowledge of the safety coaches provided by the Canadian Society of Safety Engineers (Local Chapter). These special coaches come to the Blitz Builds (building many homes simultaneously) and help volunteers by demonstrating safe building techniques.
