About Us

Simon Fraser University strives to foster a safe working, research and study environment by infusing a consistent safety culture through its safety policies and programs, the promotion of a participatory approach in identifying, reporting and addressing safety hazards.

The Environmental Health and Research Safety Department (EHRS) provides programs and services in support of safe work practices and regulatory compliance. This involves:

  • Being accessible and responsive to departments
  • Providing regulatory updates, guiding compliance, facilitating regulatory reporting requirements
  • Providing general safety training and coordinating collaborative EHRS initiatives

In addition, EHRS reviews regulatory proposals and requirements, manages relationships with regulatory agencies, and maintains oversight of compliance at the university.

Please feel free to contact the staff in EHRS for assistance with any of the above, or any other safety related concern.
