Phase 3 Completion
January – July 2017
Partnership Development and Secondary Research
Partnerships were developed with the project stakeholder groups. An environmental scan of the current state of safety training in Manitoba’s commercial construction industry was completed with the project team surveying and reviewing over 100 industry members. Other secondary research included literature reviews of more than 10 national and international standards development organizations to determine best practice methods for developing standards both in the construction industry and in other industries.
July – November 2017
Extensive primary research was conducted across Manitoba including:
- Structured interviews with more than 50 industry representatives including health and safety officers, company executives, trainers, training providers, colleges and apprenticeship.
- Structured interviews with representatives from standards-based safety training systems in Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador.
- An industry-wide opinion survey sent to more than 300 curated members of the construction industry in Manitoba. The results of this research clearly showed that a desire for standards in safety training existed and that other provinces had created successful systems that could inform a made-in-Manitoba solution.
December 2017 – April 2018
Working with the project stakeholders and using the results of the primary and secondary research, the project team identified a conceptual model that tied together the various items learned during the research and linked the research outcomes to structural models required to initiate and operate a standards-based safety training system in Manitoba. The models reflect best practices used in existing standards-based systems while also integrating Manitoba stakeholders’ views and priorities.
