Risk’s fifth annual Safety and Wellness Week (Sept. 16-19) provided multiple opportunities for community members to get engaged with health and safety practices at UCalgary.

In addition to safety tours with members of the executive leadership team and special events for Shining Star award winners and the Joint Worksite Health and Safety Committee, faculty, staff and students were all invited to get involved in two different keynote speaking events.

The UCalgary-wide building evacuation drills conducted from Sept. 12 – 24 were very successful — Kinesiology A earned the title of most-improved evacuation time over last year, and Scurfield Hall took top honours as the fastest evacuation based on building size.
