Environmental Health & Safety

Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) has a broad mandate with the objective of ensuring and facilitating a safe environment for all employees, students, visitors and contractors who engage in activities across our community and frequent any of our spaces.

EHS works closely with other units in different portfolios across the campuses in order to provide a comprehensive health and safety framework designed to support specific client groups based on their needs.

Our mission is to ensure that an environmentally responsible, safe and healthy work, research and study environment exists at the University of Toronto.

We do this by being proactive in identifying risks and emerging issues and by developing and implementing innovative, practical and sustainable processes to manage them, including training and awareness, teaching, provision of expert advice, emergency response and assurance.

The University of Toronto Mississauga has a local EHS office that serves as the local point of contact for addressing health and safety issues, and implementing EHS programs and activities at the campus.
