Health, Safety and Security

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is committed to the health and safety of our staff, students and visitors. Our focus on health and safety supports our continued advancement as a leader in providing post-secondary education and technical training to the province of Saskatchewan.

The Health, Safety and Security department in Human Resources partners with stakeholders to develop health, safety and security policies, standards and practices at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

Within this department, there are two units:

  1. Health and Safety
    This unit is responsible for the health and safety of students and employees.
  2. Campus Safety and Security
    This unit is responsible for the safety and security of our campus communities and works closely with fire and emergency services, law enforcement agencies and other community partners to ensure Sask Polytech provides a safe learning and working environment.

Campus Emergency Procedures

The Health, Safety and Security team oversees Campus Security, administers Sask Polytech's Emergency Response Notification System and provides education and leadership in the emergency planning, response and personal safety.
