Risk and Safety Services at Queen's 

Risk and Safety Services provides operational and strategic direction to the university on all issues related to risk management, safety and security. 

We collaborate with other university units and external partners, and report to the Office of the Vice-Principal (Finance and Administration)

Our portfolio includes: 

  • Campus Security and Emergency Services: To promote a safe and welcoming environment that recognizes and is respectful of the diverse nature of the Queen's University community.
  • Enterprise Risk Management: To ensure that the process for managing risks is integrated into Queen’s overall governance, strategic planning, management and reporting processes, policies, values and cultures.
  • Environmental Health and Safety: To enhance teaching and research at the university by fostering a healthy and safe work and study environment.
  • Insurance Services: To identify and analyze risks, and ensure that Queen's activities go forward in a way that minimizes the adverse effects of these risks at a reasonable cost.

Our work supports the university community as it seeks to fulfil its mission to create and maintain a positive and vibrant education and research environment.
