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):

The personal health and safety of each employee in the Southern New Hampshire University community is a shared responsibility. Each employee has the responsibility to perform their job in a safe and responsible manner, using good judgment while being aware of the health and safety of themselves and others. The University strives to promote safety and health awareness in the workplace and to provide mechanical and physical facilities that meet safety standards and practices. Providing a healthy and safe work environment requires the commitment of both the individual employee as well as the University. The objective of the combined efforts is to keep the number of disabling injuries and illnesses to a minimum with the ultimate goal being no work-related accidents and injuries.
