Safety and Security

At UFV, you’ll find everything from chem labs to classrooms to construction zones. Wherever you are — in a conference room, your favourite study spot, or walking across the parking lot — we are committed to making sure you feel safe and secure.

The Safety & Security team encourages employees, faculty, students, and visitors to explore and make use of the resources within this website. Please help us create a culture where we all look out for each other’s safety and manage risks well.
