When it comes to self defense, people often donít think about it until it is too late. Do you know how to protect yourself? The CU Campus Safety Committee will sponsor a Self Defense Course facilitated by Public Safety and the American School of Karate and Judo on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 from 3:30-4:30 pm in Harper 3023. The course will consist of a short presentation and then hands on practice of techniques. Work out attire is preferred at the sessions. Due to space and instructor/student ratio, please RSVP to MarshaPierce@creighton.edu.
With thunderstorm/tornado season approaching, it is important to have an emergency plan prepared. Here are some simple questions to help you prepare:
1. Do you know where your shelter area is located?
2. Have you signed up for CUAlert?
3. Do you know the emergency procedures for different weather and emergency situations?
Being prepared is everyone's responsiblity and can help prevent chaos that may occur during an emergency situation.
As a reminder, it is once again time for the lab safety refresher training. This is for anyone who works in a lab and has already completed the initial training. It is essential that all lab personnel (faculty, staff, students, volunteers) complete this training by the end of the spring semester (May 2013). Please pass this along to anyone that works in your lab. The training, which takes approximately 15 minutes, is online (click here). As in the past, there is a quiz. New employees and students should take the training specific for them (click here).
