Codes of Practice


In Manitoba, the director of Workplace Safety and Health may approve and issue codes of practice for the purpose of providing practical guidance on the requirements of any provision of regulations under The Workplace Safety and Health Act.

Failure to observe the guidance of a code of practice is not an offence. However, where a person has been found in contravention of a provision of regulation under The Workplace Safety and Health Act, a code of practice may be used as evidence in a prosecution with respect to the contravention.
