The 2007 baseline was adopted to keep consistent with SFU's 2014 STARS report.
At SFU, Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), in consultation with a diverse group of university stakeholders, has developed an extensive array of health and safety policies, programs, procedures, and training activities. These set the foundation to ensure compliance with the federal, provincial and municipal legislation and standards that guide SFU’s operations and activities. Joint Health & Safety Committees are in place and consist of worker and management representatives. There are 12 committees and they each meet monthly to discuss and review safety initiatives and the effectiveness of existing safety programs. The committees are also responsible for performing inspections of the workplace and participating in incident investigations.
Note: The reported cases are cases reported to the Provincial WorkSafeBC. These are the number of accepted cases each year. Furthermore, the reported cases include injuries reported by third party contractors such as dining, janitorial and construction staff working at SFU while the full-time equivalent numbers used throughout this reporting process do not include third-party contractors.
