FHS Learner Safety Education

When a student participates on a work placement through their education program to gain work skills they are considered a Learner. A Learner could be potentially exposed to the same hazards as any employee.

Before a Learner goes on a placement there are safety education requirements to complete. Please contact your program to gain access to your student training module in MOSAIC.

Safety Education

Safety education should be completed through the MOSAIC system. Please contact your programme to gain access to your student training module.

Use the Learner Education/Training Record to record the dates of your education.

NOTE: Your program reserves the right to identify which sessions are required. The requirements posted here are the suggested minimum requirements.

Incident Reporting

If an incident does occur it must be reported to your local supervisor or preceptor and your education program using the McMaster Injury/Incident Report Form and submit to your program.

You should report the incident to your supervisor or preceptor because they are required to complete Section 2 and 3 of the Incident Report.

The information is sent to the FHS Safety Office for review.

After a needlestick injury or an exposure to blood or body fluids use the Risk Evaluation Form to help identify the potential risk. This form will lead you through a decision process meant to capture information on the incident.

The information gathered on the Risk Evaluation Form will help you and the consulting medical professional evaluate the risk of the exposure.
