York University is launching a new online training module called Slips, Trips and Falls Prevention, available June 10 on YU Learn.

Slips, trips and falls are among the most common causes of injuries reported at the University. This training aims to prevent workplace injuries using a series of lessons and knowledge checks to review how to identify and eliminate hazards, how to report and correct unsafe conditions, and how to respond to a slip, trip or fall incident.

This concise, self-paced module will be offered online via YU Learn and is required training for all staff, faculty and instructors at York University. This training is mandatory and all employees must complete the training before Oct. 1.

To access the training module, employees must register on YU Learn using their Passport York credentials. Select “Register” and then click the “Access Course” button. The course will then remain on the YU Learn dashboard until successfully completed. Upon completion, the course will be listed with the date completed in the Required Courses section of the My Learning History tab (accessible via the YU Learn dashboard). 

For more information or assistance with the training, employees should reach out to their manager or academic administrator, or email
