Revised 703

Effective Date: 
Friday, April 25, 1997

The revision of this university policy clarifies that the Safety and Health Director has the responsibility to plan and recommend safety and health programs and must maintain appropriate accident records. The Director of Personnel no longer maintains those records. The Safety and Health Director reports to the Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs through the Director of Human Resources. In addition, the University Safety and Health Committee is responsible for University-wide policy issues and serves as an advisory unit to the Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs. An operational safety committee shall be appointed by the Chancellor to assist the University Safety Committee in performing various functions. Final prioritization of funding for safety compliance rests with the Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs, with recommendations from specified administrators and committees.
