EHS Safety Fair, 2016
EHS Safety Fair, 2016

Nearly 400 visitors found lots of great information, advice and gifts at the Fifth Annual Safety Fair held on the Anschutz Medical Campus on Sept. 21.

Thermo Fisher provided platinum-level support for the event — as they have every year since the fair’s inception — heading more than two dozen groups from the campus, commerce, community and regulatory control arenas.

The event is produced by the Environmental Health & Safety department to promote a culture of safety in the workplace, in the home and while at play.

“We say EHS also stands for Everyone Home Safely, and we strongly advocate for safety in all aspects of our lives, not just here at the university,” said EHS director Ethan Carter.

In conjunction with the Safety Fair, each year EHS recognizes select campus groups for their exemplary dedication to safety on the two campuses. Dr. Jeffrey Stansbury of the School of Dental Medicine, and the members of his lab received the Safety Excellence Award for consistently outstanding adherence to regulations and dedication to worker safety.
