As part of Belmont's ongoing commitment to improving workplace health and safety, we have developed specific programs in the office of Risk Management and Compliance focusing on accident investigations, threat assessment, risk management, and campus safety. Working with the Associate Provost and Dean of Students, the University has comprehensive evacuation plans, regular environment testing specifically within the dormitories and food services, and the University has purchased an alert communications system that sends email notifications and text messages and voice messages to registered user's phone numbers.
