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:

The College maintains that the safety and protection of students and employees is one of our greatest concerns. Therefore, every supervisor and employee is responsible for working cooperatively with the Safety Committee to eliminate unsafe conditions that can cause unnecessary injuries and accidents. It is also the responsibility of all employees to follow all federal, state, and local standards, and for supervisors to stay current on these standards, to communicate them to their staff, and to enforce them. The College complies with the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) and all other applicable regulations. Safety is a priority at the College. We make every effort to keep all work areas safe and free from hazards. Supervisors are to assist employees with safety and health requirements. All employees are expected to observe all applicable safety requirements, and to immediately report any unsafe or hazardous conditions to your supervisor.
