Welcome to the University of Manitoba. The Province of Manitoba requires that all new workers, either new to the University, or new to a particular workplace at the University receive a health and safety orientation. This is intended to ensure workers are aware of how to deal with safety issues and should minimize the risk of injury to you as a worker as well as others in your workplace.
The Province requires documentation that you have received and understood this training. To do this, you must complete the New Worker General Orientation test which is a short, online multiple-choice test. You can take the test as many times as required but you must get a score of 70% to PASS the test in order to complete the training.
Environmental Health and Safety also provides resources to new and current workers on a variety of safety and health topics. There is also a reference list that provides links to legislation, University Health and Safety policies and procedures, and other useful resources.
If you encounter any difficulty accessing resources or taking the required test, please contact EHS at 204-474-6633 or by e-mail at EHSO@Umanitoba.ca
