Trucking Certificate of Recognition
Safety certification is a process by which employers are recognized for meeting a standard of Occupational Health & Safety. This standard has been established by SAFE Work Manitoba, and is known as SAFE Work Certified.
RPM is the certifying partner for the trucking industry and awards the Trucking Certificate of Recognition to companies who meet the SAFE Work Certified standard.
The certification process requires every workplace, regardless of size, to demonstrate the implementation of a comprehensive and effective safety and health program based on three safety essentials and their correlating measures.
The safety and health essentials required are:
- Leadership Commitment
- Hazard Identification and Risk Control
- Worker Participation
Companies that become SAFE Work Certified are eligible to receive a prevention rebate of the greatest of 15% of their premium or $3,000, to a maximum of 75% of their assessment premium. For example, an eligible employer who paid $4,000 in premiums for a given year, would receive a $3,000 rebate annually, representing 75% of their premiums. An eligible employer who paid $100,000 in premiums for a given year, would receive a rebate of $15,000 annually, or 15% of their premiums.
