Health & Safety Policies and Procedures

Pets in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre:

Background: Since 2007 the University Health and Safety Committee has advised that this issue be dealt with on a case-by-case basis in the affected faculty, department and/or unit. Accordingly, incidents can be brought to the attention of local health and safety committees.

Policy: The IKBLC Health and Safety Committee reviewed this issue at its October 2014 meeting.  A solid majority of the members agreed that pets are not permitted in the Learning Centre.  The exception to this policy is for registered animals that are serving as guides or aides to their owners.

Workplace Inspections

Supervisors are required to regularly inspect their work areas to ensure that unsafe conditions or practices are discovered and eliminated or controlled. Inspections should be conducted approximately one week prior to the Safety Committee meeting to allow time to prepare the inspection report and consider various corrective actions to be discussed. For more information, please consult Section 5 of the Risk Management Safety Committee Training Manual.
