MONDAY 14th MAY  11:00am until 2:00pm 


As part of an ongoing commitment to safety at UNBC, the safety department is hosting the first of what we hope to be an annual ‘Safety Day’ in the Canfor Winter Garden next Monday.


Numerous employees will be on hand as well as external contractors from ICBC, RCMP and Worksafe BC for you to learn how to remain safe both on and off campus. Some highlighted topics include distracted driving, IT security, ergonomics, Harassment and Bullying, Mental Health Awareness, Emergency Preparedness, WHMIS, Lab and Field Safety work.


Come and meet your representatives from the Safety Committees whilst having a light refreshment.


In addition, the UNBC SAFE app, a safety application that can be downloaded to your work and/or personal mobile devices will also be launched at this event.


UNBC is dedicated to the safety of our community members; we look forward to sharing this day with you!
