Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) provides the following environmental services to the university community:

  • Oversight of environmental approvals and licenses.
  • Environmental assessments.
  • Liaising with regulators.
  • Oversight of remediation and reclamation activities on university property.

Report an environmental incident

Report all spills or releases of hazardous materials as soon as possible, including hazardous discharges to air, land or water. Immediate reporting ensures that legislated reporting requirements are met and can help to minimize impacts to the environment.

Inform your supervisor, complete the online incident reporting form  and provide information as required by HSE to complete necessary corrective actions.
