CFA College Safety Committee

All colleges at the University of Utah are required to establish, support, and maintain active safety committees. The primary goal of these committees is to promote a culture of safety across campus. Safety is a broad topic that encompasses research, field work, and day-to-day operations. The work of the safety committees is intended to eliminate or minimize workplace injuries and illnesses and ensure regulatory compliance by involving students, employees, and managers in the process of creating and maintaining a safe work environment. Following safe practices in every environment, in the field, in the lab, in the office, and even during personal time, leads to greater efficiency, improved productivity, higher quality research, and an enhanced sense of well being.
