The safety awards were created to recognize and encourage safe practices at Concordia. The safety awards highlight initiatives that improve, inspire and maintain best practices in health and safety. Champions are members of the Concordia community who have made significant changes, overcome barriers and had an impact on safety on campus.
The awards will be handed out at the Concordia Engagement Awards Night, taking place on April 12, 2018. The Champions are recognized and honoured for their outstanding work that goes beyond their mandates.
The award ceremony aspires to create awareness of the difference-making work happening in safety across campus. It also aims to inspire others to follow in the recipients footsteps to create long-lasting, positive change on campus.
In recognition of the individuals and safety committees that work to promote safety and encourage safe work practices at Concordia, the Safety Champions Awards were created to acknowledge their efforts and thanks them for their hard work.
Three awards will be granted, one (1) to a Safety Committee and two (2) to Safety Champions.
