Mission

Unit Safety Mission Statement - 2013

At Washington State University maintaining and enhancing a safe work environment is a responsibility that is shared by the administration, supervisors, employees, safety and health and risk management offices, and safety committees.

The director of University Publishing is committed to protecting the safety and health of staff, students, clients, and visitors. In order to fulfill this commitment the director has established the University Publishing Safety Committee to advise and assist unit management in promoting health and safety issues. The committee meets at least annually with the director and/or unit management to develop and review goals and activities.

Employee involvement in the unit’s safety and health efforts including safety committee activities ensures a safe and healthful workplace. The University Publishing Safety Committee provides a forum where every employee or student within the department can communicate safety related concerns. Hazards that are identified and shared with the safety committee will be addressed in a timely manner. The ultimate goal is to prevent injury or illness and promote a safe and healthy work environment.
