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

A brief description of the institution’s workplace health and safety initiatives:

Pomona College is committed to providing a safe work place and complies with all applicable federal and state safety regulations. In this regard, the College has instituted an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP).

Employees are required to observe safety requirements, and to use the safety equipment as trained and instructed. Each employee is expected to: (1) obey safety and health rules, (2) follow established safe and healthy work practices, (3) exercise caution in all work activities, (4) correct or promptly report unsafe and unhealthy acts and conditions in the workplace, and (5) participate in safety training programs. Employees may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination, for engaging in unsafe work practices or for violating established safety rules. If employees observe unsafe actions or conditions, they should report them immediately to their supervisor or to the Human Resources Office.
In keeping with its commitment to providing a safe workplace, the College has a zero-tolerance Policy on Workplace Confrontation and Violence which can be found in Section V of the Employee Handbook.

Employees must report any injury on the job to their supervisor immediately following a job-related injury. Treatment, if required, will be provided in accordance with law.
Employees and their supervisor must each complete a “Report of Occupational Accident” form within 24 hours of the occurrence of the injury. Forms are available from supervisors, the HR Office and the CUC Disability Administration Office.
