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):

JCCC compares year-over-year changes in workplace injury and occupational disease cases. We do track historical levels of claims, but given that number of employees, specific employees, and types of employees change, we find that comparing to the previous year is the most useful.

Percentage reduction in workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per FTE employee from baseline:

Number of workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per 100 FTE employees, performance year:

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:

Health and safety initiatives are decentralized across campus. Respective departments are responsible for ensuring that their employees receive the appropriate and necessary safety orientation/training for their position. On a broader scale the college does provide all employees with a variety of general health and safety training/information on various topics. Some specific programs include the annual employee training modules that all employees are required to complete covering topics such as sexual harassment and information security; also, JCCC's Keeping Our People Safe (KOPS) program (http://www.jccc.edu/kops) helps to ensure that employees and students have a safe environment in which to work and learn. A variety of health and safety tools and resources are available to employees via the college’s intranet site.
