Notice something on Campus that seems unsafe?
The North American Occupational Safety (NAOSH) Week is May 5th to 11th this year, and to celebrate, HSE is putting on a "House of Hazards" contest. Come on out and test your safety awareness. How keen is your eye for safety? Walk through three different areas (Lab Safety, Home/Office Safety, & Industrial/Workshop Safety) and see how many hazardous items or procedures you can find! You'll get one point for each item you can spot. Even better, you'll get TWO points for pointing out safe items/procedures (since safety is always worth more!). All participants who come out will be entered to win door prizes. The individuals who earn the most points will be entered to win one of our grand prizes! There will also be a mini-scavenger hunt to help you earn some extra points. So come on out: May 8th, from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm in College West Room 113.

We've all done it:
"Did I remember to shut the stove off?", "Did I leave the coffee maker on?". Well the same kind of thing can happen in the workplace, especially in labs. Most labs use hot plates of some kind, and it is very easy to forget to unplug one before you leave for the day. This incident is yet another example of why we all need to do our part and double check our workspace before we leave. Luckily the fire only caused a small amount of damage, it put itself out, and no one was hurt. For more information, click here.
