Welcome to the Manitoba Occupational Health Nurses Interest Group website.
 Manitoba’s occupational health nurses are individually and jointly dedicated to the prevention of occupational illness and injury and promotion and maintenance of the health of workers in all occupations.  Occupational health nursing is a specialty within the broader profession of nursing and requires special skills and knowledge in the fields of occupational health and safety education, counseling, environmental health, rehabilitation, human resources and ergonomics.  The Occupational Health Nurse acts as the liaison between the workplace and the community in issues related to occupational illnesses and injuries.
 Don't forget National Nurses Week May7-13, 2018 The theme this year is   #YesThisIsNursing      Many Places Real Impact.  International Nurses Day is May 12th of that week.

Save the Date! Upcoming MOHNIG Meetings

             MOHNIG Annual General meeting.
         Wednesday, June 13-2018
          Noon to 4pm

                   

        A big thank you to those who attended our AGM and Dr. Kraut for his education session. It was great to see new and newly interested members! I look forward to assuming the past president position and helping to support the newly elected officers. A big thank you to Pat Owens who has been the Education Committee Chair for many years and has now stepped down. We will be confirming a new chair shortly. Lots of new developments and occupational health nurses are well suited to meet the growing challenges to support the health and prevention of illness and injury for Manitoba workplaces for when we start a new year in September. Stay tuned for the upcoming meetings! Minutes will be available shortly in the "file cabinet".
