ENE Memo: January 23, 2012

From the Head: 1/23

Be Safe

Just a reminder that safety must come first in all we do. As noted in an earlier ENE Memo, every person should expect to be able to come to work and return home safely each day. We take occupational health and safety very seriously in ENE, and this is reflected in the safety page found under Quick Links on the school’s web site.

At this time of year, slips and falls on wet or icy surfaces are a real hazard as we move about campus. We should also be aware of the Adverse Weather Procedures in case we have a severe weather event.

Accidents happen in split second. Please take care.
