Under guidance from health authorities and as part the BC Restart Plan, Langara College created the Health & Safety Heroes Program on September 8th, 2020 in order to control the spread of COVID-19 and provide a safe environment to students and visitors on campus. In the program, we have Health and Safety Heroes as well as Health and Safety Coordinators. 

The Health & Safety Heroes is a group of students hired to help promote health and safety practices on campus, such as use of mask/face covering, physical distancing and hand washing. You can find them stationed in the main entrances of A, L and T Buildings. They are responsible for:
