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:
Our workplace health and safety target is that each worker comes to work uninjured and leaves uninjured. A Workplace Safety Department (WSD) oversees the environmental health and safety program (including workers compensation and insurance coverage) and collaborates with Departments on emergency response, procedures, and training. First Aid/CPR training is provided by WSD and required of Campus Security, Athletic Coaches, and Resident Counselors. Monthly training is provided by a Safety Trainer, and inspection/reporting of all incidents is completed according to strict protocols. Health or Injury Emergency Response Guidelines are posted online.

EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) Mission Statement The Principia's policy is to manage operations in a manner that will protect the health and the safety of our employees and the communities where we do business. The Principia will accomplish this task by involving and empowering each employee in creating a safe working environment. It is within this focus that The Principia has formulated a structured set of rules for all employees. The effort and method of formulating this set of rules included involvement of all departments within our location. This diversity has fostered a spirit of cooperation and active support throughout our group. Accident prevention depends on this cooperation and active support. This challenge to all employees is to work in an efficient and safe manner. The fact is that at The Principia, "Safety comes first." Source: https://prinweb.principia.edu/internal/workplace-safety
