Due Diligence in the Lab
Working in a laboratory inevitably presents some risks (from minor to significant) which can impact the health & safety of those working in the labs, adjacent areas and even the environment and members of the community near the Ryerson campus. The federal, provincial and municipal governments have numerous pieces of legislation to help ensure workers, the public, and the environment are protected.
In addition, many granting agencies will not release funds unless the University has specific programs in place. They will inspect and audit the University to verify compliance with legislation.
By reading a few short documents and filling out some basic information, attending training sessions specific to your areas of work, you help ensure the University fulfills its legal obligations.
