The Dean is responsible for overseeing compliance with all directives, procedures, and standards established by the University, their faculty or by government agencies at the Faculty level. The Dean must also ensure that appropriate occupational health, safety, and environmental programs are in place for the Faculty. This includes developing, establishing, and maintaining objectives, plans, directives, guidelines, and procedures necessary to manage occupational health and safety hazards and to ensure sound management of environmental issues applicable to his/her faculty. Deans shall allocate or, if necessary, request sufficient resources to ensure the effective operation of these programs. They are also responsible for monitoring adherence with directives, guidelines, procedures and standards established for their faculty. Deans are required to take corrective action, within the scope of their authority, as soon as they are made aware of a situation involving non adherence to policy and procedures, or laws and bylaws. Situations requiring further assistance or intervention should be reported to the appropriate University authority.
