Health and Safety Inspections

Health and Safety Inspections will take place from Monday October 5th - Friday October 16th. Community Living is adjusting our method this semester for completing Health and Safety Inspections to prioritize the safety of our students & staff.

This semester, Health and Safety Inspections will be conducted as follows: 

Community Living staff will inspect residence halls to evaluate the health, safety, and security of our buildings as outlined in Section 16.3 Health and Safety Inspections and Section 9.5 Right of Entry in Rights and Responsibilities. Inspections take place once per semester. They are a time for staff to touch base with residents who are home, confirm the space is free of any fire safety or conduct violations and help the resident address any concerns within the space. 

 Important Reminders for Health and Safety Inspections

Statistics from the 2019-2020 academic year Health and Safety Inspections can be found on our Health and Safety Inspection website along with the schedule.

Schedule

Follow-up inspections for those who do not pass initial inspections will be completed by Wednesday, March 18th. 

These follow-up inspections will be conducted by your CA and will only take place when a resident is home. For this reason, your follow-up inspection may not take place between 9:00am - 5:00pm. If you are concerned about the timing of your reinspection, we encourage you to reach out to your CA to set up a time for the reinspection to take place.

Community Living staff members will inspect residence halls to evaluate the health, safety, and security of our buildings as outlined in Section 16.3 Health and Safety Inspections and Section 9.5 Right of Entry in Rights and Responsibilities.
