- All employees are responsible for knowing the applicable safety regulations governing the activities they carry out and are accountable for complying with them.
Authority and Responsibility
- The Department Head or Chairperson has the responsibility and authority for implementation. They may elect to delegate the authority for implementation for the Program to someone in their Department but they may not delegate their responsibility for its implementation (Appendix A must be completed and forwarded to EHOS).
- Department Safety Coordinators serve as liaisons between EHOS and campus departments.
Compliance with Safe Work Practices
- The Code of Safe Practices, developed by management or supervisors, is the instrument employed to instruct and define for employees in a specific functional environment, what protective measures must be taken to avoid most workplace injuries (see Appendix B).
- Employee Training Checklists for General Safety (Form IIPP-1) and for Shop/Laboratory Safety (Form IIPP-2) can be used to track employee training.
