Attention all CUPE 4207 members, this is a friendly reminder from your Health and Safety Officers to report fires, or the potential for fire, immediately to EMERGENCY SERVICES – 911 – to ensure response and then Campus Security Ext. 3200.
Campus Security Services staff provide security services, including answering and responding to emergency calls 24 hours, 7 days a week and can be reached at any time at Ext. 3200. Their administrative lines are not 24 hours/day.
This warning comes in light of recent high temperatures and an incident report regarding a smouldering fire in front of the ESL building in May. Areas specifically at risk for fire are designated smoking sections and surrounding areas, landscaping areas with wood-based mulch, and/or areas with dry grass.
The St. Catharines Fire Chief Dave Wood has recently warned residents that throwing away a lit cigarette may result in starting a fire. We urge all members to be conscious of high risk areas and to report any potential fire activity to 911 AND Campus Security Ext. 3200. Please ensure you follow up with your supervisor after contacting Campus Security and fill out an Incident Report Form.
If you have any questions please contact your CUPE 4207 Health and Safety Officers.

New members who have just been hired by Brock to work in one (or more) of the jobs that are represented by our union, need to take a health and safety training and be paid for it!
The health and safety training is mandatory by law (a regulation in the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act). The workers must be paid for the time spent in the training.
Brock provides the training only online and pays for
- 1 hour of Health and Safety Awareness training,
- 30 minutes for Workplace Violence training,
- 1 hour of training about Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act [AODA] (all three modules). This totals to 2.5 hours of pay for the training.
The training is on Sakai. You must notify your designated departmental administrative assistant that you have completed the training in order to receive your compensation (there is a link for this step at the end of each training session).
Important to note: Your department must create a separate contract aside of the one you have signed for teaching.
Here is a short slide-format information on the role of the labour union at our workplace. It includes information on our Health and Safety Committee and the mandatory health and safety training.
