 JHSC Poster Contest

The campus JHSCs are challenged to identify a hazard that is relevant to their specific committee or to the University as a whole and to develop a poster related to reduction/mitigation of this hazard on campus. For example, slips, trips and falls. The winning poster will be selected by EOHSS and displayed across campus with special recognition to the specific JHSC at the NAOSH barbecue and vendor fair. The deadline for submissions is Friday April 27th, 2018.  Contact EOHSS at  for more information on poster criteria.

 

McMaster Health and Safety Award of Excellence

The McMaster Health and Safety Award of Excellence is presented to a person or group from our McMaster community who has done an outstanding job of promoting health and safety in the workplace. 

Nomination Criteria


The 2017 Winner was:

 

Todd Prior
Integrative Neuromuscular Biology Laboratory, Kinesiology

Todd has been a long standing member of the DBAC JHSC and takes time to train each incoming student on basic safety measures while making sure they are aware of the necessary safety facilities.  Todd goes the extra mile by researching and discussing the use of alternative chemicals that are safer yet equally effective. 

 

A special thank you to fellow nominees Kellie Rabak and Michael Cupido for their continued efforts to promote health and safety in the workplace.
