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:


Obviously it is our goal to have zero injuries. This means that the employees must be involved with the various safety programs that affect them in their area. We continuously try to keep the employees involved through their supervisors and managers. It must be a priority for their supervisor for it to be a priority for them. Training is a huge part of this and there is required training for certain areas/employees.

We also rely on the supervisors/managers to talk about safety on a regular basis and give the employees a chance to bring up safety issues. This constant communication allows for information to be addressed and improvements to be made. We are trying to get this to be the safety culture across campus. With this constant interaction, we hope to keep improving towards our goal.
