Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Compressed Gas: Safe Storage and Handling

Compressed gases are under high pressure and used extensively across campus in various locations. In order to ensure the safety of the workplace and that of the individuals using compressed gas, the University has developed a mandatory on line training module as well as a Safe Storage and Handling Guideline.  This guideline should be reviewed prior to completion of the training module.

 Compressed Gas: Safe Storage and Handling Guidelines

Supervisors (those with responsibility over the workplace or learning  environment) must ensure individuals working or learning in a space where  compressed gas is used, understand the hazards associated with compressed gas and ensure safety data sheets are readily available for each gas in each location.  Users should review these so they are aware of the hazards associated with the gas itself.

The training module is to be completed by all individuals who are responsible for the transport and use of compressed gas, including  connection or disconnection of lines and regulators.  You must achieve an 80% grade in order to successfully complete the training.  A record of completion will be maintained once you select the submit button within the training module.  

The training is approximately 30-45 minutes in length.
