Safety Coordinator description of responsibilities

(August 1999)

Information Resources believes that the oversight and ultimate responsibility for the safety program is a management responsibility.

  • Each IR Director is ultimately responsible for his/her unit.
  • Each IR Director will appoint a Safety Coordinator for the unit.
  • The Safety Coordinator will report to the IR Director who appointed him/her.

The IR Directors are responsible for the development of safety policy and for providing the resources to ensure a safe work environment for each employee.

The Safety Coordinators will work together, under the direction of the Director of Administrative Services, as the IR Health & Safety Task Force in the development, delivery, and audit of safety policies, procedures and programs.

The Safety Coordinator of each area/unit is responsible for:

  • the implementation of policies,
  • development of procedures,
  • coordination between units where possible,
  • facilitation of employee training,
  • audits and inspections
  • reporting, documentation and record keeping for the Health and Safety Program.
