Internal Responsibility System

The Internal Responsibility System (IRS) is a joint partnership among all members of the McGill University community. Within the IRS everyone has direct responsibility for health and safety as an essential part of her or his job. Everyone at McGill University, no matter their title, is expected to take initiatives on health and safety issues and to work to solve problems and make continuous improvements in the workplace. Each person does this both as an individual and in co-operation with others because they share joint responsibility for identifying and resolving health and safety issues.
