A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted:

The Environmental Health & Safety Office developed the following materials to be reviewed by all new employees hired as of October 2013:

Safety Training Presentations:
-Slips, Trips, and Falls
-Eye, Hearing, and Hand Protection
-Fire Extinguisher Informational
-How To Report Workplace Hazard Incident
-General Safety Tips
-BioWaste Training
-Bloodborne Pathogen Training Preview
-Chemical Hazardous Waste Training
-Laboratory Safety

FGCU Incident Reporting Forms
-Workplace Hazard Investigation Report
-Non-Employee Incident Report
-FGCU Near Miss - Potential Hazard or Incident

Employees should complete a Near Miss Report for all near miss potential hazards or incidents that did not result in a injury, illness, or damage but could have.

FGCU Near Miss Report

Workplace Safety Videos
-Back Safety
-Slips, Trips, and Falls
-Stairway Safety
-Fire Safety
-Defensive Driving
-Miscellaneous Safety

These presentations, forms and videos prepare employees to protect themselves and others, prevent accidents, and appropriately respond in the event of an incident or near miss. We established 2012-13 as our baseline year and 2013-14 as our performance year so we could begin to evaluate the effectiveness of these safety training materials.
