Health & Safety in SEOS

A SEOS Safety Committee has been established to advise the Director on matters relating to workplace health and safety. The role of the Committee is primarily consultative and the duties are to review, inspect, recommend, and promote. Initially, the Committee will be largely COVID-19-focussed, but as operations resume and we eventually return to a more normal, or new-normal, work environment, responsibilities will extend to include ensuring and promoting a healthy and safe working environment for all SEOS members, including required workplace inspections, incident reviews, etc.

  • Terry Russell, Chair (BWC Building Emergency Coordinator)
  • Blake Dyer, Assistant Professor
  • Karina Giesbrecht (Science and Medical Buildings Safety Committee)
  • Roberta Hamme, Associate Professor
