Safety Committee updates
As temperatures drop, our campus is experiencing more unhoused people inside our buildings seeking warmth. For your safety, do not approach or attempt to wake anyone sleeping in the building as they may become startled and respond in a hostile manner. Please call CUPD at 303-492-6666 and ask for a welfare check, providing the location and a description of the person. Your safety is our top priority.
Always check your winter boots to make sure they are ready for the winter season. It can be very easy to slip and fall if you have boots that have become worn over the years. You may also consider bringing a pair of shoes to wear while in the building.
The Facilities Management Safety Committee meets the third Tuesday of every month to discuss general safety concerns, review safety reports and on-the-job injuries, and recommend training needs and resources. If you are interested in attending a meeting or bringing a safety-related issue or idea, reach out to our Safety Specialist Don Fitzpatrick.
