Get tips for better living at the Safety, Health, and Security Fair

If you thought the annual Safety, Health, and Security Fair was all about protective gear and padlocks, think again.

Starting on Monday, Oct. 18, the week-long event provides a range of insights to help make your life easier, safer, and happier. You’ll find support for overcoming hardships, resources to help prevent mishaps, and wisdom to help you live your best possible life.

Events are both in-person and online. Masks are required at the in-person events.

In-person resource fair 

On Tuesday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., come in person for the resource fair in the Compton Union Building Senior Ballroom. Representatives from local organizations will showcase products and services and answer your questions. Officials from university departments and administrative units will also be on hand to share information about campus resources.

Presentation of awards 

The day’s highlight comes at 11:30 a.m., when President Schulz will present this year’s President’s Awards for Safety, Health, and Security. The awards honor those who have contributed significantly to the WSU community’s safety, health, and security in the past year.

Daily flash talks with practical tips

On Monday—and again Wednesday through Friday—a series of online flash talks will be hosted by experts from across the WSU system. You’ll hear multiple 10- to 15-minute presentations in the one-hour window from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Speakers will deliver practical information and connect you with a network of support in your campus community. 

Each day’s lineup addresses a different topic:
