Organizations that participate in NAOSH Week are encouraged to apply for NAOSH Awards based on their week-long celebrations. Demonstrate your commitment and experience of NAOSH Week by applying for a NAOSH Week Award at www.csse.org/awards_program.

The Manitoba Agri-Safety Award is presented to a farm or agri-business that has made a positive effort toward implementing safety. With an awareness that in agriculture the home can also double as the workplace, we understand that major changes can't always be made all at once. Thus, the selection process for our award will equally consider both small and large victories. If you or someone you know has made a positive change to increase safety practices, please send us a nomination describing why that person/business is deserving of the award by August 1, 2018. Nominations can be emailed to email@example.com or made through our website at www.manitobafarmsafety.ca.
