Employee Safety Programs

The College is committed to providing a safe and healthy campus environment for all members of the College Community. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), establishes national requirements for protection of employee health and safety. The College is covered by OSHA's General Industry Standard which establishes safety standards for a wide variety of operations. The College has developed programs to comply with applicable OSHA requirements, as well as, additional safety policies and programs to protect the health and safety of our employees. Your supervisor will inform you of safety policies procedures and you will receive training on those safety programs applicable to your job. Employees are responsible for following all safety procedures and work practices, reporting hazardous conditions or operations, and reporting any job related injury or illnesses in accordance with established College guidelines.
