Safety Manuals

The campus safety manual contains dozens of policies, procedures, and written plans. Some are required by regulations while others serve as guidance documents. If you have questions regarding any safety policy, procedure, or plan, contact the Environmental Health and Safety Department. The four main sections of the manual are:

  • General Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Environmental Compliance
  • Hazardous Materials

The latest edition will always be available on the Environmental Health and Safety website.

Safety Training

Training is an important part of every employee’s job and is required by regulation in some cases. Options for safety training include:

  • A department or employee supervisor
  • The Environmental Health and Safety Department
  • Using Skillsoft, which contains approximately 35 courses in safety

You can find a complete listing of safety training programs in Appendix A.
