The University, the Union and the Employees will work together to maintain healthy and safe working conditions in order to prevent occupational illnesses and workplace accidents, according to the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997.

When necessary, Employees shall receive paid training regarding equipment and emergency procedures for carrying out their responsibilities.

The Employer shall offer Employees access to Employee Assistance Program and/or other forms of psychological support following instances of accidents or violence in the workplace (e.g. fatalities, near-fatalities, critical injuries, physical or psychological violence, harassment), or upon request by an Employee.

When an occupational health and safety situation is deemed critical by the Union, the Employee may contact the Assistant-Director of the Sport Services to correct the situation.
