College of Engineering / Engineering Office of Safety / Objectives



We will achieve this objective by:

  • Working with the college community to develop safety empowering programs and identifying the resources needed for their implementation.
  • Creating a process for open dialogue, reporting and learning from past experiences.
  • Making hazard identification and risk assessment processes an integral part of the experimental design, theses, dissertations, extramurally funded projects, student organization projects, and undergraduate and graduate education.
  • Empowering undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and visiting scholars, faculty and staff to freely voice safety concerns.
  • Implementing a process for safety education and training for students, faculty, staff and department chairs.
  • Integrating safety education and practices into our engineering curricula.
  • Instituting a system of accountability, recognition, and rewards.
