About us

The Office of Health and Safety at UOIT provides comprehensive health and safety consultation and support services to the university community with the objective of promoting a culture of safety, occupational health and environmental protection, while supporting education and research.

Under the portfolio of the Vice-President, Human Resources and Services, we assist the university in meeting legislative requirements by offering leadership and guidance to proactively identify and manage biological, chemical, ergonomic, industrial hygiene, physical and radiological hazards in our academic and research laboratories, building facilities, and administrative support areas. Our mission is to work collaboratively and co-operatively with faculty, students and staff to reduce hazards and risks. To achieve this, we build strategic partnerships, monitor compliance, and develop and implement environmental health- and safety-related policies, programs and procedures.
