The health and safety of the members of the Carleton community is non-negotiable and will always be our top priority. The Office of Risk Management is working in partnership with Health and Counselling Services to ensure that we have a plan where we welcome faculty, staff and students back to campus in a gradual and phased manner that prioritizes personal health and safety.

Employees may also want to consult the Government of Ontario COVID-19 and Workplace Health and Safety website.

Please note that Environmental Health and Safety continues to provide critical services as required to the university community. In accordance with the university’s directives, most of our team are working remotely, but we strive to have at least one member on campus during regular working hours. If you have questions or concerns, please contact ehs@carleton.ca.


Before returning to work on campus, all faculty, staff and students must complete the COVID-19: Infection Prevention and Control Training in Brightspace. This online training course will provide general information regarding the health and safety practices and considerations required for working on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic.
