Safety at the Agri-Food Discovery Place

Agri-Food Discovery Place is committed to providing a safe environment and creating a culture of safety first. In its occupational health and safety partnership with the Government of Alberta, AFDP was the first facility within the University of Alberta to be awarded the Certificate of Recognition for its health and safety management program. AFDP prides itself as being viewed by the University of Alberta as an example of the successful integration of health and safety into operations.

It is recognized that a safe workplace can be established and sustained only through a united effort by all involved working towards a shared goal. As such, there is a facility-wide commitment to safety which ensures that safety is not an after-thought. This commitment ranges from the policies and procedures of senior management to the work practices employed on a daily basis.
