Health, Safety and Wellness

As our University community makes the gradual shift back to campus, the Health, Safety & Wellness team continues to provide faculty, staff, and students guidelines and best practices for a safe transition to traditional, in-person operations, with the goal of completing this process for the Winter 2022 term.

Our Healthy Workplace Advisor provides assistance in a number of areas such as medical leaves and accommodations, healthy lifestyle initiatives, and ergonomic assessments for work stations.

Our online safety training is available in our Safety Training section.  Please refer to each online course that requires a hands-on workshop for more information.

Our team continues to be committed in keeping our university a safe place to
work, learn and live.....

Have a great summer, get your vaccination when eligible and stay well!
