How to plan for a safe campus

We continue to prioritize the health and safety of the NAIT community.

NAIT’s COVID-19 General Safety Guidance came into effect on August 23, 2021, and should be used by leaders and staff as they plan for continued safe operations and in-person activities on campus. This guidance document replaces the COVID-19 General Safety Direction.

Hazard Assessments

Alberta Occupational Health and Safety legislation requires employers to develop hazard assessments for biological hazards related to respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.

Leaders are responsible for completing hazard assessments for their areas to identify and assess risks and implement appropriate safety measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure.

Hazard Assessments must be completed and sent to hse@nait.ca.

Once completed, leaders should share the hazard assessment with all staff in their program, department or business unit to ensure they are aware of the hazard and the controls that are to be implemented and followed.

For staff conducting NAIT business at external sites, be sure to review and follow the COVID-19 External Visits Checklist.


COVID-19 signage package

NAIT has developed a self-serve signage package for staff to use to promote best safety practices in their areas.


How to get more information

NAIT's Coordinated Response Team maintains the COVID-19 website, which contains current information on safety measures in effect on our campuses. The website is updated as the situation evolves and in response to provincial direction. Please check back regularly or use the QR code on campus signs to access the latest safety information.

Staff are encouraged to work through questions related to COVID-19 with your school or business unit and, when necessary, to bring questions and concerns to your area's representative on the COVID-19 Advisory Committee.
