Roles & Responsibilities
Occupational Health & Safety Program
The ultimate responsibility for establishing and maintaining the Occupational Health and Safety Program on campus rests with the Board of Governors of The University of Lethbridge. Basic policies, which govern the activities and limitations of the Health and Safety program, are proposed by the President of The University of Lethbridge and issued under the final authority of the Board of Governors.
The primary responsibility for providing and maintaining a healthy and safe campus environment on a day-to-day basis lies at the operational departmental level. Specific responsibilities of all Facilities staff are directly proportional to their operational authority and are listed below.
The Facilities Department requires that all supervisors and employees adhere to the policies, regulations and procedures set forth in departmental Health & Safety manuals as well as the policies and regulations of The University of Lethbridge and the Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Regulation and Code. These manuals do not replace the standards set forth by The University of Lethbridge or the Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Regulation and Code. Where there are discrepancies the stricter will apply.
