About OHC

The MFL Occupational Health Centre (OHC) was established in 1983 to meet the need for quality, accessible, and comprehensive services on workplace health and safety. That need continues today.

Working Together to Create Healthy Workplaces

OHC is a community health centre specializing in workplace health and safety. We are a non-profit, charitable organization funded by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and by donations from individuals, unions, and other groups. OHC helps workers, employers, and joint health and safety committees to improve workplace health and safety conditions and eliminate hazards.

Workplace health and safety is an important issue for workers and employers. Workers have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, while employers benefit from lower costs and a healthier workforce.

Our services, available free of charge, include a medical clinic, assistance to workplaces and informative fact sheets on a variety of topics such as preventing repetitive strain injuries, respectful workplaces, preventing workplace violence and more.

OHC Can Help You:

  • Determine if your job is affecting your health
  • Identify health and safety issues
  • Find solutions to health and safety problems
  • Conduct workplace based surveys
  • Deliver educational sessions
  • Develop in-house training programs


OHC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that represents workers throughout Manitoba. We are committed to working with all Manitobans who are interested in creating safer and healthier workplaces.
