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:

Texas State is committed to providing its employees, students, and visitors a safe and healthful campus environment in which to work, study, and enjoy. Safety is the responsibility of every campus citizen and can be better achieved through proper engineering, education, training, protective equipment, and enforcement of safety rules. Each student and employee is responsible for understanding and practicing the appropriate safety procedures for his or her own protection and to protect others.

All deans, directors, department heads, chairpersons, and supervisors must take an active role in the university's safety program by initiating preventative measures to control hazards associated with activities under their direction. This safety manual has been developed by the Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management office to assist you in this endeavor.
