In keeping with changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the University of Ottawa has conducted a risk assessment and identified situations in which staff could be exposed to an opioid overdose.

All Protection Service members carry naloxone with them. It will now be available in campus AED (automated external defibrillator) cabinets, including in residences. Signage has been installed to indicate where it is. Naloxone is not available in off-campus locations (e.g., 1 Nicholas, Bank).

See the campus map for AED cabinet locations.

AED and naloxone

Naloxone is available in a blister package in the AED cabinet in a small red case.
