A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

The EH&S office was re-organized in 2014 due to retirements. By 2015, three new employees were responsible for the University’s EH&S functions, with that it seemed fitting to use 2015 year as a baseline.
