Safety Program

Safety Program

Department Overview

Protecting the health and safety of the campus community and the environment is of primary concern to Clemson University Facilities. To effectively meet this objective, we've developed a Comprehensive Safety Plan designed to build a culture of sustainable safety improvements. This is achieved by empowering staff to assume responsibility for safety in their environment through education, awareness, access to resources and support at the organizational level.

Safety meetings are led by representatives from each area. Meetings are held on a daily basis with few exceptions.

A Commitment to Safety

Clemson University Facilities is committed to providing a safe workplace, necessary protective equipment, appropriate safety training, access to appropriate medical care for its employees, and to protecting the environment for students, other University employees, and the community. The safety program helps provide employees with a safe and healthy work environment. Our goal is to develop a safety consciousness among employees and others engaged in work for Clemson to reduce accidents and occupational illnesses to a minimum and identify and control safety, health and environmental hazards associated with its operations.

Safety Absolutes

University Facilities has developed a list of rules internal to our organization that our employees are required to follow. These Safety Absolutes are intended to encourage and promote a culture of safety during day to day operations.

We must work together and accept personal responsibility for our safety and the safety of those with whom we work. Each employee's enthusiastic commitment to our Safety Program is vital in fostering this kind of work environment.

If you spot something on campus that you suspect could pose a safety risk to students, employees or visitors, please e-mail our Safety Coordinator.

No job is so important and no service so urgent that we cannot take time to perform our work safely.
