Safety Committee

The Faculty of Science Safety Committee receives, records, and advises on health and safety concerns occurring within the Faculty of Science. Where required, matters discussed are raised at the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee level as well.

The Safety Committee consists of technical employees and faculty members from each Faculty of Science Department/Program: Astronomy and Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Forensic Sciences, Geology, Mathematics and Computing Science, and Psychology. In addition, a Research Instrument Technician representing the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research also serves on the committee.

Meetings are held regularly (at least three times per semester), and monthly meetings are held as required. Committee meetings are chaired by the Dean of Science or designate, and committee members serve for a minimum term of two years.

For additional information concerning the Faculty of Science Safety Committee, please review Work Instruction #5 - Faculty of Science Safety Committee Document.
