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 University of Colorado Boulder will comply with all applicable environmental health and safety rules and regulations. Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is a division of the UCB Department of Public Safety and is responsible for implementation and enforcement of the Campus environmental, health and safety program. Accordingly, the Director of EH&S has been delegated the authority to issue related policies and procedures for the Boulder Campus and, if necessary, to suspend activities and/or close areas that are deemed to be unsafe, to human health or the environment, and/or non-compliant with Federal, State or Local regulations.

EH&S will consult with the respective VC prior to or immediately following the issuance of policies/procedures or curtailment actions taken, based on the circumstances. In addition, the Director of EH&S will interact directly, on a regular basis , with each VC (as well as the Chancellor, as appropriate) on issues involving safety, health and environmental compliance in their respective division.
