Health and safety forms for members:
Attention all CUPE 4207 members, this is a friendly reminder from your Health and Safety Officers to report fires, or the potential for fire, immediately to EMERGENCY SERVICES – 911 – to ensure response and then Campus Security Ext. 3200.
Campus Security Services staff provide security services, including answering and responding to emergency calls 24 hours, 7 days a week and can be reached at any time at Ext. 3200. Their administrative lines are not 24 hours/day.
This warning comes in light of recent high temperatures and an incident report regarding a smouldering fire in front of the ESL building in May. Areas specifically at risk for fire are designated smoking sections and surrounding areas, landscaping areas with wood-based mulch, and/or areas with dry grass.
The St. Catharines Fire Chief Dave Wood has recently warned residents that throwing away a lit cigarette may result in starting a fire. We urge all members to be conscious of high risk areas and to report any potential fire activity to 911 AND Campus Security Ext. 3200. Please ensure you follow up with your supervisor after contacting Campus Security and fill out an Incident Report Form.
If you have any questions please contact your CUPE 4207 Health and Safety Officers.
