I. Employee Safety and Injury
This manual details the university's safety policies and procedures. It requires that all staffers be individually responsible for becoming familiar with and observing all university safety rules. You are equally responsible for understanding and observing university rules for your own safety and for the
safety of your staff, and you may be required to establish safety rules particular to your department or work area. You are required to inform your staff of all safety rules and to make sure that they comply with them.
Under state workers’ compensation law, any on-the-job injury, no matter how insignificant it may seem when it occurs, must be reported by the injured staff member immediately to you and to the Human Resources department. If you become aware of a workplace injury, please make sure that the injured employee files a report.
