NEW! Potential Elementary and Secondary School Closures

Members of the Queen’s community with childcare responsibilities: On Thursday October 3, school boards across Ontario were notified that the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) plans to begin full strike action on Monday, October 7th if they cannot reach an agreement with the government and employer associations between now and then. We recognize that in the event of school closures some members of the Queen’s community with school-aged children may be impacted and may be unable to make alternate arrangements for childcare on short notice. If this is the case:

  • Department of Psychology faculty should speak directly to Wendy Craig. Any students impacted by this are encouraged to speak with faculty.
  • Department of Psychology staff should speak to Theresa Brennan. Options could include requesting lieu time (if available), vacation time or unpaid leave. In certain circumstances, compassionate leave may be appropriate for short periods. Employees and managers should contact their CST Advisor if they have questions regarding their options.

Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP)

The Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP), is entering its 25th year. Funded partially through the undergraduate portion of the Student Assistance Levy, the program encourages the creation of on-campus summer jobs that offer valuable experiential learning opportunities for Queen’s undergraduate students who will be returning to studies in the fall.

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY FOR SUPERVISORS - The Occupational Health and Safety Act in Ontario defines a supervisor as a person who has control over the workplace or authority over an employee. Therefore, in a university setting there are a wide range of positions, such as director, department head, departmental managers, departmental technicians, principal investigators, post doctorate fellows and in some cases graduate students, that could be considered supervisors. Building on the concepts and information provided in the mandatory on-line Health & Safety Awareness module, the Health and Safety for Supervisors session will assist individuals in understanding their role as a supervisor, as well as their legal duties and responsibilities under the Occupational Health & Safety Act and within the University’s Health and Safety Management System. These sessions are open to all faculty, staff and graduate students that have supervisory responsibilities at the university and have completed the mandatory on-line Health & Safety Awareness training. The course will be held in the Faculty and Staff Learning Facility, located in Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Complex B176,  in the Lecture Theatre.

  • October 8th, Tuesday - 1:30 – 4:00pm

Please register through the Environmental Health and Safety website: https://www.queensu.ca/forms/ehs-training-%E2%80%93-occupational-health-...

WHMIS.2015 TRAINING - The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that all employees, or supervisors of employees, who work with or who are in proximity of chemicals receive WHMIS Training.  The Queen's University Policy on WHMIS training states that employees must take WHMIS at Queen's and must retake the course if they originally took it prior to January 1, 2000. The training is open to all Queen's students, graduate students, staff and faculty.  The session will be a maximum of two hours in length, and will require completion of an on-line quiz, to be completed after attending the class.  The training will be held in the Faculty and Staff Learning Facility, Macintosh Corry, room B176, Lecture Theatre.
