All employees, students, and users of services at Centennial College have a right to a safe working/learning environment. This right is legislated in federal and provincial laws such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and Ontario's Building, Fire, and Human Rights Codes. For your safety, at Centennial these rights, along with other related responsibilities, are outlined and enforced through our employee collective agreements, health, safety, security and dispute resolution policies and procedures. These policies and procedures apply to all college activities, services, and facilities. Copies of these policies are available at all Campus iCentres.

Along with these rights, come responsibilities. These responsibilities include but are not limited to obeying the general laws of the land, treating the College and all members of the college community with respect and honesty. This also includes cooperating with college officials such as security, lab monitors and professors, and when requested, providing proper identification.
