At the University of Manitoba, there is a process in place to report any health and safety incidents that occur.
All accidents, incidents and near misses need to be reported to the worker’s supervisor, and a notice of injury form must be completed and emailed to ehso [at] umanitoba [dot] ca within 24 hours. In Canada, workers compensation is a system of compulsory no-fault insurance for workplace injuries. All staff are covered under the province’s Worker’s Compensation Act.
The U of M’s Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) website and staff provide resources on a wide variety of health and safety related topics. You can also see the EHS Quick Contacts list for who to contact about a particular topic or find a link to more information.
