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

Tarleton's baseline was adopted to assist in tracking reportable workplace injuries and occupational disease cases. Investigating this type of data allows the development of strategies to address and eliminate these types of incidents.

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

Tarleton's Department of Risk Management & Compliance performs and monitors multiple safety and training programs across the university. Several training programs are set up through on-line based power point and video presentations on topics pertinent to office/workplace health and safety. In addition, first aid, CPR and Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) training is also scheduled multiple times each year for faculty and staff. A safety incentive program is also in place with several faculty departments that work within labs in the science building. This program keeps an open line of communication between Risk Management and individuals within those departments. Risk Management is able to more timely address health and safety concerns and provide safety equipment in a more timely fashion.
