Established in 2013, the Office of the Chief Risk Officer (OCRO) oversees Campus Enforcement and Patrol, Environmental Health and Safety (formerly the Department of Health and Safety), Enterprise Risk Management and Emergency Management. This includes the development and implementation of an emergency management program; maintaining a risk management framework; the safety and security of people and property of the university; and the health, safety and environmental program.

The Office of the Chief Risk Officer works collaboratively with the Memorial University community to provide a safe, secure and healthy environment with a managed, proactive approach to risk through engagement and education that supports teaching, learning, living and working on campus.

Memorial University’s Office of the Chief Risk Officer will be regarded by its peers as a leader in the fields of emergency preparedness, health and safety, security and risk management. We strive to be collaborative and innovative when developing and implementing programs, initiatives and best practices.


Need to report an incident/accident?

eAlert is an integral part of a safe and secure university environment. The incident report form was created so members of the university community could report incidents that may be a concern to the health, safety and security of the university community.
