The Occupational Safety Program is responsible for the development and management of programs consistent with General Industry Standards, best practices, and regulations put in place to reduce work-related injuries and illnesses.
The program assists departments in implementing health and safety programs by advising unit safety committees and personnel, assessing hazards, investigating reports of unsafe conditions, and assisting in training, instruction, and document development.
In addition, the program investigates work-related incidents, provides review and development of University Safety Policies and Procedures, serves as liaison to regulators and the workers’ compensation insurance carrier, and analyzes trends in an overall effort to pro-actively mitigate occupational hazards.
