    The HRMAM Health & Safety Award recognizes initiatives and programs that foster a safe and healthy work environment. As Safety Services Manitoba is the province’s leading provider of occupational and road safety training and consulting services, sponsoring this award is a perfect fit.

    SSM was pleased to present the HRMAM Health & Safety Award to Red River College at the awards gala event on Wednesday, April 24, 2013.

    Red River College’s three-part Integrated Campus Emergency Alerting System led them to win this prestigious award. The system ensures the safety of all students, staff and visitors while on campus by getting safety messages and warnings out in a timely, effective manner, through public address speakers and phones, text alert to cell phones and desktop alerting to computers. One of these safety messages could be enough to save a person’s life.

    The system was customized for Red River College and developed by MTS Allstream and Alertus, a US software company. Regular testing of the system has shown a nearly 100 per cent success rate, and ongoing promotion of the system has raised awareness of public safety measures at Red River College.

    Congratulations to Red River College, and thanks for their dedication to promoting and ensuring safety and health!
