Northern Lights College is committed to a healthy work environment and the promotion of safe work procedures.

At Northern Lights College we require the co-operation of all students, instructors, contractors and staff to maintain this healthy safe environment.

At Northern Lights College we ask that everyone adhere to the following rules during physical activities:

  1. Use correct posture and lifting technique when moving objects. If an object is heavy or awkward obtain help for a team lift or mechanical assistance. DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY UNSAFE LIFTS!
  2. Classroom exercises or demonstrations that require a lift off the ground of a heavy load without mechanical aid are discouraged.
