Occupational Health & Safety

Welcome to St. Francis Xavier University's Occupational Health and Safety Website.

In providing an avenue in which to access occupational health and safety information, every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this website. However should a misunderstanding arise, please consult the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act (The Act), for clarification. In addition, the Reserve section of the Angus L.Macdonald Library, has for the campus community's review; copies of the latest Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee (JOHSC) minutes; the JOHSC's Policy and Procedures Manual (safety program); copies of reports and testing results conducted by external sources; copies of the NS Department of Labour's Acts and Regulations; and other health and safety information as it becomes available.
