Objective: 

To Define EHS Responsibilities defined by the Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP).


Statement: 

At SFSU, we believe that all occupational injuries and illnesses can be prevented and that safety is a fundamental responsibility of each administrator, supervisor, and employee of the University.  
 
We also believe that safety and occupational health must be thoroughly integrated with our efforts to produce a unique high quality education in a safe and healthy environment.  
 
Therefore, for the well-being of all employees and as a matter of policy,
 

 

Managers, Supervisors, and Administrators will:

  • Ensure compliance with safe work practices
  • Actively identify potential occupational health and safety issues
  • Report and investigate all injuries, illnesses, and safety incidents
  • Promptly eliminate hazards and correct deficiencies
  • Educate and train employees to work safely

 

All employees are expected to:

  • Perform their jobs in the safest manner prescribed.
  • Conduct themselves in a way that enhances their personal safety and that of their fellow workers
  • Report workplace hazards and to make suggestions for their control
  • Cooperate and contribute toward the overall success of the program

 

These worthwhile objectives can only be achieved with the commitment and complete support of every employee of the University.
