A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

Claremont McKenna College strives to provide a safe and healthful work and study environment for employees, visitors, and students. The College recognizes that this responsibility cannot be discharged passively, but requires the active participation and support of all. The intent of this particular document is to encourage employees to communicate openly on safety and health matters. The structure allows for and encourages open communication across the College and without fear of reprisal.

This document, the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), serves as the framework for us to accomplish our mission and has been prepared in compliance with Title 8, Section 3203 of the California Code of Regulations and consists of the following eight elements:

Hazard Assessment
Accident/Exposure Investigation
Hazard Correction
Training and Instruction

The Program is designed to be a demonstration of good faith compliance to the above mentioned requirements and to serve as a framework for the Claremont McKenna College Safety Program.

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:

The intent of this particular document is to encourage employees to communicate openly on safety and health matters. The structure allows for communication at the All-College level through the liaison efforts of the Director of Human Resources (through the Human Resources Committee), the Safety and Emergency Preparedness Coordinator (through the All College Safety Committee) and the Director of Facilities and Campus Services (through the Facilities Managers’ Committee). A report of inspections and actions taken will be submitted to Senior Staff on semi-annual basis (report to be prepared by the Director of Human Resources and the Safety and Emergency Preparedness Coordinator).

Claremont McKenna College (CMC) and TCCS Campus Safety Department publish this report because it contains valuable information for our campus community. This report also complies with important provisions of the Jeanne Clery Act. Campus safety and security, and compliance with the Clery Act, continues to be a part of everyone’s responsibility at The Claremont Colleges. This report demonstrates our strong commitment to victims of crimes and
the specific extensive services we make available to crime victims, and it contains information about security policies and procedures on our campus, crime data, and crime prevention information is included.
As a significant part of our campus-oriented public safety programming, TCCS joins CMC in the commitment to foster a secure and supportive environment at The Claremont Colleges. Campus safety and security indeed requires a collaborative effort at The Claremont Colleges, and so TCCS proudly partners with the many Departments at CMC that have a critical role in fostering campus safety, including: the Dean of Students office, the Senior Administrators, Campus and Residential Life, Facilities Management, and other departments.
