How to Access the Minerva Safety Modules
What are the Minerva Online Health and Safety modules?
The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering has licenced a series of four online Online Health and Safety courses from Minerva Canada Safety Management Education. Each of the four courses includes 6 to 8 modules that can be completed in any order. Each course also comes with optional testing materials (i.e., multiple-choice quizzes).
- Course 100: Provides an overview of health and safety in the workplace, focusing on specific hazards engineers may encounter in their workplaces and ways to manage these hazards
- Course 200: Revisits some of the topics discussed in Course 100 and introduces some new concepts, focussing on hazard identification, risk assessment, and risk management and some important considerations and systems to effectively manage Health and Safety.
- Course 300: Builds on the concepts and topics discussed in Course 100 and Course 200, looking at those concepts in greater detail.
- Course 400: Topics in this latest module (added in Summer 2022) include Process Safety Management, Electrical Safety, Radiation Safety, Robotics Safety, Risk and Crisis Communications, Managing Change, Health and Wellness, and Managing Excellence in Health and Safety.
NOTE: These modules are supplementary teaching resources that FASE course instructors and departments can incorporate into their course safety training, safety lectures, departmental orientations, and facility training. Completion of these modules does not constitute training by U of T from an administrative perspective. The official U of T safety training must be done via EHS My Training.
Can I preview the modules?
The ETO has created a Quercus course designed to let FASE instructors preview the Minerva modules as a student, before requesting access to the modules and uploading them to their own Quercus course. You can self-enrol in the course using the following link: https://uoft.me/MinervaModules.
NOTE: Students should not be enrolled in the preview course to complete the Minerva modules. If you are a FASE instructor and wish to assign the Minerva courses to students, you will need to request access to the modules and then upload them to your own Quercus course.
