Health & Safety

The purpose of this section of the College web site is to provide the College community access to the health and safety information. Each department within the College is expected to utilize the Policies and Procedures contained within the Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Program to create their own specific working procedures.

The electronic Employee OH&S Program manual will be accessible on every campus and all employees must familiarize themselves with its content. Printed copies of the revised program will be made available to each campus. No unsafe act will be encouraged or accepted by Northern Lights College, whose commitment to excellence is reflected in its quality people and service.

The information found in the health and Safety Program will be current and appropriate to the College’s operations. While management is committed to providing a safe work environment, each employee and contractor, is expected to assume responsibility for his or her actions while representing Northern Lights College, and to be informed of the safety expectations in the workplace.

The College is committed to operating practices that protect the well being of personnel, equipment, facilities, property and the general public, and which comply with the general and environmental legislation by which the institution is bound.

A safety program is good business practice. Accidents are wasted financial and human resources. Recognizing the need for efficient and productive business operations, the College will communicate and enforce the policies it has adopted. The avoidance of loss, damage, illness and injury improves employee morale and client confidence.

This section of the website is maintained by the College’s Health, Safety & Environment Advisor (HSEA) with input from the various Health and Safety Committees. All questions can be forwarded to the HSEA via email or 250-782-5251 Local 1018
