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

SUNY Cortland participated in 2010/11 STARS and therefore has adopted that year as its baseline for this criteria.


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

The EH&S Office conducts formal and informal safety inspections throughout the year and corrective action for unsafe situations is promptly implemented. To encourage employee participation, safety teams have been established to focus on specific areas such as laboratory safety, driver and pedestrian safety, and confined space safety. The campus also has a formal Off-The-Job Safety Program. For occupational injuries and illnesses, employees are required to report all incidents in a timely manner. The EH&S Office promptly investigates all reported injuries and illnesses, and appropriate corrective action is implemented whenever it is necessary.
