Occupational Health & Safety
Saint Mary's University is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all the University Community; to fostering an awareness of the importance of safety on our campus; and to providing the education necessary to perform activities or duties safely.
It is not sufficient, however, to merely express these safety desires in writing but, rather, at Saint Mary's University we take a proactive stance to ensure that workplace and individual safety is ingrained in all aspects of our daily routines. This is achieved by:
- Physically providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment.
- Fostering awareness of the importance of safety and providing the necessary education.
The manner and methods by which these are carried out are outlined in the Saint Mary's University OHS Program Manual:
Chapter 4 - Department Programs
A hard copy of the OHS Program Manual may be found in the:
