Health & Safety

Article 17 of AMURE’s collective agreement covers the health and safety requirements for our members’ workplaces. Article 17.01 states that McGill and AMURE have a responsibility to ensure the highest possible standards of health and safety at work in order to prevent occupational mishaps and injuries. Furthermore, the Loi la santé et sécurité du travail and the Loi sure les accidents du travail et les maladies professionnelles state that every employee in Quebec has a right to a workplace free of physical and psychological harm. As an employer, McGill is required to meet these expectations.

AMURE is here to make sure that the conditions that our research assistants and associates are working in meet these expectations. Our Health & Safety Representative Isabelle Gamache has been appointed to deal with issues related to your workplace and to serve as a delegate on the University Health and Safety Committee. If you are a research employee who has experienced unsafe situations in your workplace, we encourage you to get in touch with us.
