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 information for this credit is based on the annual report to the Commission des Normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST; Norms, Equity, Health and Security at Work Committee) for which the institution must use a calendar year. The baseline year is the same year for all the credits. We selected the fiscal year for which there was the most data available and which was the most reliable. 01/05/2016 to 30/04/2017

A brief description of the institution’s workplace health and safety initiatives, including how workers are engaged in monitoring and advising on health and safety programs:
A policy has been created for health and safety of the employees. The institution's workplace health and safety office (Bureau de la santé et de la sécurité au travail (BSST)) is a unit attached to the human ressources services of ÉTS which is dedicated to workplace incidents and professionnal illness. The BSST acts as a counselor regarding health and safety at work for its community.
The ÉTS commitment regarding health and safety at work is stated in its Health and Safety Policy. This policy is inspired by the school vision to be a leader within engineering schools and faculties. ÉTS recognize that protecting the health and safety of people is a fundamental value.
Students and employees are inform about the program in many ways:
- Occupational health and safety committees: institutional OHS committee, joint committee and student committee
- Health, Safety and Wellness Days
- The integration and training programs: when welcoming new employees and managers, an information meeting is held to present the health and safety policy and to inform (or discuss) the prevention mechanisms in place.
- Health and safety rules are implemented and posted in laboratories and teaching or research workshops.
