A brief description of the institution’s workplace health and safety initiatives, including how workers are engaged in monitoring and advising on health and safety programs:

As approved by the President, the Risk Management Policy of California State
University, Bakersfield (CSUB) was specifically designed to identify and measure all
types of risk to the campus, and to implement risk management techniques that do not
prevent the University from carrying out its mission.
The CSUB Risk Management Policy is a campus wide policy that coordinates all of the
current health and safety policies and procedures. However, risk management is not
limited to just health and safety matters, and includes other areas such as contractual
litigation, discrimination, and sexual harassment. It is the goal of the Risk Management
Policy to identify and evaluate risk, select and implement the best risk management
techniques, and monitor the results.
