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 baseline was adopted to analyze EHS related injuries to reduce safety hazards and improve faculty/staff and student safety campus wide.

As a branch of the Nebraska State Government, we are not governed by OSHA regulations and do not track OSHA injury/illness data through ENR's and DART or TOR ratings. The numbers reported for the credit are the total number of cases reported to worker compensation during the fiscal year.
