NEW Revised Smoking & Vaping Policy

Changes have been made to the Smoking & Vaping Policy.  Some highlights of this policy are smoking and vaping at Brock University and in University owned vehicles is prohibited except in outdoor designated smoking areas (DSA), and the smoking and vaping of recreational cannabis is  prohibited on campus, including in vehicles and in DSAs.

Changes will also be coming to the 1812 Sir Isaac Brock campus DSAs in the spring of 2019 with the implementation of an east-west outdoor smoke-free corridor with a reduced number of DSAs located outside the corridor.  The information and resources provided below details the changes, the locations where smoking and vaping is permitted and provides guidance for situations of non-compliance.

Interested in quitting or reducing smoking, free help is available from the following resources:

Other resources

Young worker awareness

Brock University’s Health, Safety & Wellness (HSW) department is committed to providing resources to the Brock community, including Brock students as they enter the workforce.  These resources are intended to support and enhance knowledge in occupational health, safety and wellness.

Many young workers are not fully aware of their health and safety rights.  All employees are entitled to comprehensive health and safety training to fully prepare them for their work duties and responsibilities.  In addition, all employees have the right to KNOW about hazards in the workplace, the right to REFUSE unsafe work and the right to PARTICIPATE in the workplace to identify and resolve workplace health and safety concerns.

If you’re a young worker, regardless of where you work, a terrific resource to spark conversation with a parent, friend, or coworker is Bring Safety Home.  This resource was created to stimulate conversations between parents and young workers about health and safety in the workplace.  Additionally, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) is also an excellent option for free Health and Safety Awareness training.
