Introduction to Occupational Health and Safety

All interested staff are welcome to attend, especially those currently involved as members of Joint Health and Safety Committees or Health & Safety Representatives. 

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act) is the safety legislation that governs all provincial workplaces, including the University of Guelph. The Act assigns safety responsibilities to various workplace parties and its Regulations outline expectations and provide guidance for the performance of safe work in the workplace. 

Participants will have an introduction to the various parts of the Act and gain insights into the application of the Act and the Regulations at University of Guelph workplaces.
