A Healthy and Safe Workplace

Enabling people to make a difference - safely

The UC Health and Safety team work across the University in partnership with the University of Canterbury Students Association delivering support, education and advice. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students, staff, contractors and anyone else who visits the university.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing is about people, it’s about our actions, it’s about how our activities might cause harm, illness or affect the wellbeing of ourselves and those around us. It’s about going home each day, night, semester without harm, without suffering a long or short term illness, without being under mental or physical duress, it’s about speaking out for yourself and anyone else you may have concerns for. It’s about being, and staying safe.
