Safety Committees

As part the University's Environmental and Occupational Safety Management System (EOSMS), KSU maintains various safety committees across the campus to ensure effective participation in the EOSMS by KSU employees at various levels of the organization. The roles of Safety Committees include:

  • Help identify hazards and risks and possible control measures in University's operations and participate in the implementation of identified control measures.
  • Participate and provide input in safety inspections, job hazard analysis, incident investigation, procedure development and safety training development.
  • Listen and evaluate employees' safety suggestions and/or concerns and serve as a good example for safety.

Committee members consist of volunteers from the respective Colleges/Departments, with a representative from EHS participating in each committee to provide technical guidance.
