McMaster celebrates Health and Safety Week


McMaster University joins business and industry in celebrating North American Health and Safety Week. In Canada, institutions such as the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety and the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering promote activities that recognize the importance of safety and health in the workplace.

McMaster's Department of Risk Management Services is sponsoring technical seminars on Tuesday and Thursday and a barbecue in the Quad to recognize nearly 100 members of the McMaster community who serve on joint Health and Safety Committee.
