Physical Safety

 

Our Goal

To be a leader in promoting physical safety. We will do this by creating a culture of risk mitigation and safety throughout all campus communities. 

We will achieve this through:

  • Providing ongoing policies on safety
  • Recognizing and implementing new technologies to advance physical safety
  • Implementing appropriate and timely training for safety
  • Provide timely and appropriate support for  all incidents/accidents

Faculty and departments have the knowledge to identify and respond to situations that may put the physical health of community members at risk. The institution will provide training, protocols and support to reduce risks. All leaders clearly and consistently demonstrate concern for physical health and safety.
