Workplace Health and Safety Update on Asbestos

The Workplace Health and Safety Committee, a labor-management committee comprised of all the unions on campus and university representatives, met to discuss asbestos on campus and other concerns in December. 

The unions are satisfied (so far) that the university is responding appropriately to the discovery of asbestos on campus and that the conditions for faculty, staff and students remain healthy and safe.  We will of course monitor this closely.

The failure to notify students about finding asbestos stemmed from misunderstanding the mass email setup and will be corrected.         

The Health and Safety committee will continue to meet this semester.  Please let us know if you have any further concerns to bring up to this committee.
