Congratulations to Sue Magor,
Director of Environmental Health and Safety at Concordia, who travelled
to Florida earlier this month for the presentation of a Distinguished
Service to Safety Award.
The award is given by the Campus Safety Division of the [U.S.] National
Safety Council. There were five recipients this year from all over North
America and from England.
Magor has worked in the field for more than 20 years, all of those years
here at Concordia. She established the universitys Health and Safety
Office in 1980, shortly after the passage of the Quebec Act Respecting
Occupation Health and Safety.
Through her initiative, Concordia took a leadership role in this important
field, working with provincial authorities to experiment with several
aspects of the new legislation as it applied to universities.
Magor has also been a part-time faculty member in the Department of Management
for the past nine years, where she has developed and taught a course to
Human Resource majors in Occupational Health and Safety Management.
An active member of the Campus Safety Division and its parent, the Campus
Safety Association, since 1983, she organized and hosted the 1986 annual
conference in Montreal and has served on many of its committees.
She currently serves as the divisions historian.
