EMERGENCY PROCEDURES – TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR

We have all seen the Emergency Procedures Flipcharts around, but how many of us have actually read these?

Each week we will look at a page from the flip chart in order to become more familiar with its contents.

First Tertiary Technicians Symposium: save the date and register interest (ATEM)

Kia ora Technical Staff

I have received information of an opportunity in the New Year. UC is a member of ATEM* so if there is a discount for members, ensure this is applied when registering.

“The Aotearoa ATEM committee is organising a Tertiary Technicians Symposium on the 10th February 2020 at Victoria University of Wellington. The aim of the day is to improve the visibility and recognition of our technical workforce, provide them with an opportunity to network with their peers and help them explore professional development opportunities. This is intended to be an interactive day with workshops to untangle the new Worksafe regulations and some psychological first aid training to help technicians who are encountering students with emotional and mental health issues. We hope to bring in a keynote from Weta Digital for some inspiration followed by a panel of tertiary technicians sharing their career pathways and professional development choices. If that is not enough to get you all excited we are also organising some site visits to other tertiary providers on the morning of Tuesday 11th February for those who are interested in exploring the technical facilities of their fellow institutions.

Date: Monday 10 & Tues 11 February 2020, Venue: VUW, Pipitea Campus.  See more details in our Draft Agenda and please register your interest via email and we will notify you of the opening of the registrations as soon as they open.”
