The A-Z List of Health and Safety (H&S) Topics was developed to help you quickly find the health and safety information you need to do your work safely. The List features brief summaries (1 page or less) of a variety of health and safety subjects listed in alphabetical order. Most of the topics include links to additional, often much more detailed information.
The list was written for the employees and workers of Trent University, but students and guests to the University (including online guests) may also find it helpful.
The information contained in the List is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of writing. This is not an exhaustive list and the summaries are not comprehensive. The information should not be seen
as legal advice or as an alternative to the specific requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, regulations made under the Act, or similar legislation.
The List will be updated and new topics added on a regular basis. We encourage you to check in
frequently and to let us know if you have suggestions or requests for new topics.
