Summer of Safety at PAH

PAH is committed to ensuring that all employees feel safe while on campus and while commuting to and from work. As part of our Summer of Safety campaign, the Security team will be sharing safety and security information to all PAH staff on Wednesday, July 27 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Zubrow Auditorium.

The presentation will include:

  • General safety tips
  • Key information about PAH’s ongoing safety and security efforts
  • Q & A with Christine Vanzandbergen, an employee who recently experienced a safety issue

Key chains that feature a flashlight and a safety whistle will be distributed after the presentations.

“You can’t always prevent a security issue, but you can be prepared to handle it when it happens,” said Christine Vanzandbergen, associate CIO, clinical applications.

PAH Security is also available to give safety presentations to individual teams. Please contact Bryan Anthony, director of Security to schedule a presentation.
