Faculty Handbook

Occupational Health and Safety Rules and Regulations


All faculty and academic staff are required to comply with University, state and federal occupational health and safety rules and regulations. This requirement includes the appropriate use of personal protective equipment and participation in safety training. Occupational health and safety requirements specific to individual jobs are generally communicated through unit chairs or department heads, but any questions should be clarified by contacting the Office of Occupational Health or the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. Failure to comply with occupational health and safety rules and regulations may result in a direct assessment of regulatory fines, workers compensation costs (to units determined not to be in compliance), and/or in disciplinary action of faculty/academic staff who fail to meet the requirements.
