Health and Safety Meeting Resources


In addition to incorporating health and safety as a regular agenda item at faculty/departmental/unit meetings, including safety moments at the beginning of your meetings provide a quick and easy way to discuss safety issues or topics. Safety Moments are brief discussions on a safety-related topic. These two-to-three minute talks reinforce safety knowledge and promote a positive safety culture. To assist the university community, we are building this as a repository of safety moment topics.
