A brief description of when and why the workplace health and safety baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

FY 2006 was chosen as it was used often in STARS 1.2 (under which we received our last score) and because it's used as a baseline year for other STARS credits. We used it for continuity and consistent reporting.


Percentage reduction in workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per FTE employee from baseline (0-100):
69.28

Number of workplace injuries and occupational disease cases per 100 FTE employees, performance year:
3.17

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:

UNH created an Occupational Safety Committee (OSC) to ensure that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are provided a safe environment on campus. This committee serves as an advisory group concerned with safety, health, and environmental protection. Its purpose is to assist in the identification and control of workplace hazards. The OSC meets on a quarterly basis and makes recommendations to the UNH Environmental Health and Safety Committee for addressing hazards and improving safety.
