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:

MacEwan University is in the process of developing and implementing an integrated workplace health and safety program and associated tools to ensure our work environment is safe and contributes to a culture of health and safety. This strategy is currently in process and includes development of executive sponsorships, a health, safety and environment management program, as well as associated training and customer guides and templates. MacEwan University has recently re-written their HSE Policy to align HSE Program requirements, as well as established a Health, Safety and Environment Steering Committee comprised of executive and academic leadership who provide institutional guidance in the continued development and implementation of the health, safety and environment management system program development. MacEwan University has dedicated positions for the development and delivery of the HSE program.

MacEwan Health, Safety & Environment has developed a Google site, for communication of HSE Program Policy and Standards. The Google site is accessible by MacEwan faculty and staff through log-in.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Data related incident report was sourced from MacEwan University’s incident reporting and tracking software 'Perspectives'. Reporting was provided for MacEwan employees only. For the time being, contractor numbers cannot be accurately reported on as MacEwan does not consistently track or require reporting on contractor H&S statistics. However, it is a long- to mid-term goal to adequately incorporate contractors in the reporting system.
