Safety Den is a Dragons’ Den-inspired event showcasing ideas from people like you, working and supporting long term care who are passionate about improving workplace health and safety.

Do you have an idea or innovation that will help prevent workplace injuries and improve the health and safety of long-term care workers?


Category 1 Workplace Safety Innovation

Open to workplaces that provide care & services to seniors in Manitoba. Pitch your innovative safety idea to the "Dragons." No idea is too small! We want to hear from employers, workers, and workplace safety and health committees.

Three ideas will be pitched to the Dragons. 

First Prize $1,000 | Second Prize $500 | Third Prize $250


Category 2 Commercial Safety Innovation

Pitch your organization's innovative safety idea to the "Dragons." Three ideas will be selected to be showcased to the Dragons.  

Presenters will receive a First, Second, and Third Place commemorative trophy. 


Present your innovative safety ideas to a panel of ‘Dragons’

Three finalists from each category will be invited to present a two-minute pitch to our DRAGONS (judges) at the conference during a 90-minute session with delegates cheering you on.


Convince the DRAGONs that your idea is the best and you can win monetary prizes or bragging rights for the year!



Complete the submission form prior to March 1, 2024, and include:

ü Short description of innovation/idea

ü Explanation of benefits/improvements in workplace safety

ü Overall Impact on the Workplace


A committee formed by SAFE Work Manitoba will review and determine the top three submissions. The top three submissions will be asked to present to the Dragons at the LTCAM conference on May 9th, 2023 to determine first, second and third place and prize allocation.


How does the SAFE Work Manitoba committee shortlist the applications?

The SAFE Work Manitoba judging committee will be using the following scoring criteria:


  1. Innovation - is this idea creative, innovative and unique to address a specific need
  2. Benefits and Improvements- How has this improved the lives of the Seniors in Manitoba.
  3. Impact on Workplace Safety and Health - what feedback or measurable results have been received i.e. how do you know it is making a difference?
