Information for Employees and Students

Red Deer College (RDC) is committed to a Health and Safety Program that protects its employees and students, property, workers who enter its property, the general public, and the environment. Our commitment to safety is in accordance with standards outlined in the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act, Regulation and Code. Learn more about our OHS program

RDC’s objective is to prevent injuries and property damage in all work and learning execution and operations. This will be achieved by creating a work and learning atmosphere in which health and safety is implemented in everyday operations. All employees are responsible and accountable for RDC’s health and safety performance and will provide leadership for the Health and Safety Program. Employees will be familiar with the requirements of the RDC Health and Safety Program as it relates to work processes. This will be achieved by:

  • Promoting a work and learning environment based on employee and student involvement, teamwork, education, training and commitment.
  • Promoting the philosophy that safety is a value associated with every priority.
  • Recognizing group and individual achievements.
  • Treating everyone with dignity and respect.
  • Ensuring all OHS regulatory requirements are met.

RDC is responsible for the health and safety of employees, and this is achieved through actively encouraging employees to participate. RDC will provide health and safety education and tools so all employees are aware and understand their responsibilities.
