Health and Safety Committee
The purpose of the Campus Health and Safety Committee is to act as an advisory body to Cabinet on matters of health and safety and to increase health and safety awareness among all members of the CSU, Chico campus community. The Committee will make recommendations to assist Environmental Health and Safety in achieving the University's goal of creating a safe environment that is most conducive to the mission of the University.
The Campus Health and Safety Committee will report annually to the President and Cabinet. Through its work, the Committee will aid in the implementation of health and safety provisions contained in the Collective Bargaining Agreements. The Committee will make recommendations and report, as needed, to the Director of Environmental Health and Safety, with emphasis on training the campus community on health and safety policies and procedures in order to prevent and correct work-related health and safety issues. The Committee’s focus is on prevention and correction of unsafe working conditions, as well as on education and training. The Committee will not be directly involved in receiving OSHA complaints, investigating such complaints, or developing resolutions.
The mission of the Health and Safety Committee is to address work-related health and safety concerns stemming from working conditions. The Committee may assist Environmental Health and Safety in its role with the University Public Safety Advisory Committee* and the University Police Department with issues that may include both work-related health and safety issues and public safety issues that concern law enforcement.
