Education & Outreach


Adult Education: Working Together

Training that meets your needs

Information into Action

Education is a part of the work that we do at the Occupational Health Centre (OHC).  We try to provide you with information and skills you need to make your workplaces safe and healthy.

People learn best when education is active, relevant and practical.  Our approach to education starts with your experiences on the job.  We work with you to develop a common understanding of problems and workable plans for change.

What do we provide?

Our educational and outreach services include monthly one-hour sessions on occupational health and safety.  These are free and open to anyone.


OHC develops hands-on workshops tailored to your needs and workplace.  We offer workshops on topics such as:

  • Ergonomics
  • Respectful Workplaces
  • Workplace Violence Prevention
  • Workplace Sexual Harassment Prevention
  • Basic Health and Safety Rights
  • Building Effective Health and Safety Committees
  • Training Your Own Trainers


We are committed to working with people that face special barriers in the workplace.  We have developed links with young workers, immigrant workers, and workers and employers in rural and northern Manitoba.  In addition, we have developed special fact sheets and information kits for young workers, immigrant workers, and small business.
