SHERM’s Mission is to support the university’s values, vision and mission by integrating and fostering a health and safety oriented culture of leadership, responsibility, legislative accountability and environmental stewardship. Our goal is to manage risks and seek opportunities for continuous improvement by providing expert advice and delivering services that enable the Laurier community to safely achieve the university’s priorities.  SHERM fulfills its mission by working collaboratively and building respectful relationships with internal and external stakeholders. 

Guiding Principles:

1.  Develop, promote and implement best practices in loss prevention, mitigation and operational risk management.

2.  Manage the university's overall health and safety program with the goal of preventing occupational injuries and illness.

3.  Develop and implement programs and procedures to meet all of the requirements, duties, and standards set by the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments, and the Environmental Protection Act.  A complete listing of all international, federal, provincial, municipal legislation and CSA Standards applicable to Laurier is available for further information.

4.  Create a welcoming environment for all staff, faculty and students including those with disabilities.  If you have an accommodation request for any of our services, including alternative formats for any of the material on our website, please contact Christine Haywood at chaywood@wlu.ca.
