In order to determine if our safety program is working or not, evaluation measurements need to be established.

TheEnvironmental Health and SafetyOffice

This office produces a monthly report that incorporates lost time accident frequencies as per OSHA guidelines.

This frequency information is placed on a spread sheet covering the last ten years.

This report also indicates the number of lost time accidents by type and by department along with the average number of days lost for all accidents.

This report is shared monthly with all supervisors, managers, and University Safety Committee members. This gives each supervisor and manager an instant picture of how effective they have been in their department in eliminating accidents.

This report is used by the supervisors in monthly safety meetings.

The information details where and what type of accidents are taking place. With this information, follow up to eliminate future accidents is done. The report form is located in the appendices.
