A brief description of the key components of the custom OHSMS:

Occupational Health supports the welfare of the CSU community through risk assessment, application of controls (engineering, administrative and PPE), and medical surveillance, in order to meet our goals of providing the safest and healthiest work environment possible at CSU, as well as meeting University, funding, accreditation, and regulatory requirements. We are safer when we are aware of risks and use our resources to reduce them. We take a collaborative approach to prevent injuries and illnesses. When incidents or concerns do arise, we approach them as opportunities to educate, increase safety awareness, and cultivate relationships. Rams take care of Rams and CSU Occupational Health is here as a resource for you.

A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :

The employee number used here is the total number of people employed on campus during the reporting year. If there was turnover in a single position, each person to fill the position during the year is reported. So FTE listed in Institutional Characteristics is representative of the weighted average number of positions on campus, this number represents the total number of people employed by the university in a year. This reporting methodology is consistent with official reports. The information was provided by the Office of Risk Management and Insurance.

Colorado State University does not have any significant contractors with employees that work on-site as part of regular and ongoing campus operations.


Annual number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health per 100 FTE employees:
