Safety and Health Week

North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (May 1 to 7) is an annual event intended to draw attention to the importance of injury and illness prevention, both in the workplace and in the community overall. 

The national theme for Safety and Health Week 2022 is working together to create safe environments for all.

This Safety and Health Week enjoy a return to some in-person activities at the University of Alberta:

Wednesday, May 4: Safety Stroll (noon to 1 p.m.)

Join us for some safety storytelling as we stroll around North Campus. We'll point out some high incident locations, talk about what emergency preparedness looks like at the U of A, and share safety secrets!


Monday, May 2 to Friday, May 6 Safety Pop-Ups

Not sure how to proceed with hazard management, safety training, or emergency preparedness? We'll pop over with some activities and resources to help you and your unit to get started.

What it is: Pop-ups typically include two HSE staff/hands on activities/educational resources. We like to set up in open areas where we can engage with staff or students (such as an atrium or central hallway).

What we'll need: You provide the location (and a table, please), we'll do the rest. An electrical outlet is helpful too!
