Health & Wellbeing

At McMaster, we are taking a holistic approach to sustainability. By investing in our human resources as well as in our environmental resources we can truly improve the sustainability of our campus in the broadest sense.

Annual Health & Safety Fair

McMaster summer student employees took part in the annual Health & Safety Fair at McMaster University, hosted by North American Occupational Safety & Health (NAOSH). We were able to showcase how we test campus lab fume hoods to ensure they are working properly. We also provided information on the Shut the Sash initiative, which reminds those using fume hoods to keep the sash closed when not in use. This contributes to energy savings, as well as safer labs on campus. There are many health and safety concerns when it comes to working in labs, and ensuring that fume hoods are safe is just as important as the safety measures we adhere to when testing them.
