2019 ATAP and Engineering Safety Day: Thursday, March 28

Calendar with a pin in March 28

With safety as our top priority, Safety Day has become a successful tradition in ATAP and Engineering. This all-hands, all-hazards, all-day event has a mission of “Clean Labs, Clean Shops, Clean Offices,” reflecting a primary emphasis on good housekeeping and identification of hazards in common areas, offices, labs, and shops.

What Do We Do on Safety Day?

The whole day will be devoted to safety-related activities. A morning of workplace cleanups will be followed by a wildfire safety seminar, workplace self-assessments, and management walkthroughs.

Things that we can take care of immediately (and safely, staying within our skill sets and physical abilities) we will fix on the spot. Problems that are not feasible to fix immediately, and larger-scale suggestions that call for time and money and planning, will be officially noted and scheduled for later action. You can also dedicate part of the day to reviewing your WPC Activities or getting caught up on training.

We’ll be back in touch with further details and will post resources on this page. Meanwhile, please block out March 28 on your calendar and plan on being part of this highly beneficial communal investment in safety. We look forward to seeing you there.
