Safety, Health, Environment and Risk Management
Attending university is an exciting and stimulating phase of your life. During your time on campus you will be making new friends, engaging in the Laurier community, going to new places and experiencing new life challenges.
With every new experience, Safety, Health, Environment and Risk Management (SHERM) wants to make sure you know how to stay safe, whether you're cooking in your kitchen, working in a lab setting, working a part-time job or spending time on your computer (see Office Ergonomics Training).
SHERM's health and safety training can also be used to enhance your qualifications when applying for a job, since providing health and safety training is a requirement for all employers.
Raising Safety Concerns
Laurier is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of its students. In order to do this, we all must play an important role in identifying and reporting hazards. If you see an unsafe condition, please take the time to report it to SHERM so that we ensure the problem is brought to the attention of the appropriate department for correction.
