Campus Safety Committee

Charge

The Campus Safety Committee serves as an integral group, charged with monitoring and reviewing University safety procedures and practices, identifying and reporting unsafe conditions; and recommending to management, ways to enhance the effectiveness of the University's safety program.

  • Advise management in the development of the campus wide safety policy;
  • Report to the appropriate manager, any unsafe conditions observed by or reported to membership and monitor the response and abatement, and refer unabated conditions to the next level of management, as necessary;
  • Review all internal safety inspection reports conducted by management, or external reviews conducted by regulatory bodies, and offer suggestions and recommendations relative to the reports' findings and conclusions; and
  • Review investigation reports of accidents and make recommendations relative to accident prevention and hazard abatement.

The committee has diverse representation from the campus leadership including management, represented staff, designated safety personnel and law enforcement.

 

Resolution Plan

Safety concerns reported to the Campus Safety Committee will first be assessed and evaluated by Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S). If EH&S is unable to resolve or address the concern at the local level, concerns will be reported to upper-management for additional review and/or corrective action. Updates to reported safety concerns will serve as agenda items for future meetings and will be discussed as necessary.
