The Occupational Health and Safety Office develops protocols to reduce risk and provide safe and healthy working conditions for students and staff. A Safety Committee meets regularly throughout the year, and students are encouraged to make suggestions for health and safety improvements within the College. The office provides first aid supplies, blood pressure equipment, and respirator fit testing equipment, as well as information regarding health resources. MCAD regards health and safety to be of prime importance. During the course of their studies at MCAD, students may come into contact with hazardous equipment, procedures, and materials.
