Occupational Health and Safety

Memorial University works hard to promote a safe and healthy environment. As part of these efforts, occupational health and safety committees have been mandated throughout campus. Occupational health and safety committees play a critical role in developing a positive safety culture in the workplace. They act as safety champions on behalf of the Univeristy by identifying and evaluating safety concerns, making recommendations for corrective action, and promoting health and safety in the workplace, all while working to reduce workplace accidents and injuries. These committees are a legislated requirement of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations.

The Occupational Health and Safety Committee of the G.A. Hickman Building is comprised of a group of individuals representing both the workers and the employer. This committee meets quarterly, as part of the collective responsibility for occupational health and safety.
