Safety & Risk Management

Welcome to the Safety and Risk Management website. Our site is designed to be a resource for SUU faculty, staff, students and administrators. As part of the Facilities Management Division, our mission is to work closely with you and your department to identify, evaluate and manage risk in order to provide a safe environment for the campus community. We assist with the development of safety and risk programs which include environmental compliance, occupational safety and health, and property and liability insurance.

On this site, we provide links to additional information about commonly used forms (including Certificates of Insurance) and risk-related procedures and policy documents.

In the past 12 months, The Safety and Risk Management Office has collected 50 different employee-injury reports which required a visit to a medical professional. Injuries are pretty uncommon to the individual departments on campus but this data shows that injuries like these occur about every 7-8 days.

At SUU we believe that an Injury Free Campus is an achievable goal and the only acceptable goal. An Injury Free Campus is accomplished when every SUU employee is empowered and accountable to stop any unsafe act or condition and implement the SUU safety Program.
