Employee injury costs were increasing on the UC San Diego campus so additional safety staff were hired to target high claims areas of campus with additional loss prevention services (training, inspections & personal protective equipment).
UC San Diego maintains a broad-spectrum Environment, Health & Safety Office (EH&S) to advise employees on risks in work environments ranging from laboratories, shops and clinics to offices, dining facilities and housing facilities. EH&S Staff proactively inspect all high risk work areas and provide training to employees as required by their job duties. All UC San Diego employees are encouraged to report safety concerns and make suggestions to EH&S via e-mail, telephone, or campus mail, including an anonymous suggestion box if they prefer.
