Proposed CSC Structure
Under the proposed CSC structure every employee at the University is represented on one of these committees. Each committee meets at least three times annually to discuss health and safety-related topics and concerns within their represented departments. Employees are encouraged to run for committee membership, vote for representatives, and communicate health and safety concerns to the committees.
Those programs housed and co-chaired by Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) are under the Campus Safety Committee (CSC) program. The CSC program is managed by EH&S in collaboration with Risk Management (RM). Each committee under the CSC program is supported by executive leadership known as the executive sponsor. Elections for members of these committees are held every two years and elected/appointed members serve for two years on their committee.
Responsibilities of the CSC
Responsibilities of the campus safety committees include:
Reviewing and evaluating accident investigation reports
Reviewing and evaluating departmental health and safety plans
Reviewing and discussing health and safety suggestions from employees
Providing feedback on safety-related material provided by EH&S
Recommending actions to resolve health and safety concerns
Committee chairs of the CSC program are automatic members of the Risk and Safety Committee (R&SC), managed by the RM department. Information regarding the R&SC can be found on the RM department website
Other affiliated campus committees may have their own rules and regulations they must adhere to. All affiliated campus committees are encouraged to be a part of the R&SC to provide feedback and develop open lines of communication between all campus safety committees regarding the safety of the campus. More information about EH&S affiliated committees can be found under the Affiliated Safety Committees section below.
