General & Occupational Safety:

All workers, students and visitors have the right to work, visit and live in a safe and healthy environment. The department of Environmental Health and Safety promotes this concept through programs and services designed to prevent accidents and injuries on the job and as a general procedure around campus. Our department works proactively with employees to reduce occupational injuries and illnesses in the workplace by providing consultation, training and inspections on improving the safety culture on the campus by:

  • Conducting workplace inspections and safety audits for offices and observed work
  • Consultation of unsafe construction projects and equipment
  • Response to worker incidents about safe procedures during work hours
  • Conducting accident investigations where the need for increased training can benefit all involved
  • Holding necessary specific training that targets hazards like: fire extinguisher training, fall protection, ladder safety, and arc safety awareness
