Garbage Dude’s tips

February 18th, 2020

Garbage Dude was created by Facilities Management to raise awareness about waste on campus. Here are some of Garbage Dude's tips for making good choices at the waste sorting stations:

  • Do recycle ziplock bags and aluminum foil, even if they are not clean.
  • Don't throw takeout coffee cups in the recycling bin. They are garbage.
  • Do compost kleenex (new and used).
  • Do compost all paper products; only clean paper can be recycled.

First Aid tips

January 14th, 2020

Dawson College trained another cohort in First Aid in the Workplace last week. About 45 employees are now certified as First Aiders after two days of First Aid in the Workplace training. Last semester, about 40 students were also trained in basic First Aid.

The first responders on campus are always the Security team. They can help a speedy response by directing emergency personnel on site.

When at Dawson, do not call 911. Call the Security Desk at ext. 1000. There is always someone on duty 24 hours/day.

There are some great tips from the program that we can all keep in mind:

  • Never move the victim unless in danger
  • Never feed the victim
  • Whatever is inside (impaled), leave it in
  • Whatever has come out, leave outside the body
  • Whatever is normally dry, cover with a dry bandage
  • Whatever is naturally wet, cover with a wet bandage.
