Working for a
EH&S investigates accidents for a
more secure future.
EH&S staff investigated nearly
accidents to learn more
about their cause and to determine what might be done to
prevent recurring injuries on campus. Based on severity
and potential for improvement, EH&S selected
for comprehensive analysis in cooperation with University
Human Resources. This collaborative effort will ultimately
prevent future accidents, protecting the campus community
from injury and reducing the cost of lost time accidents.
Slips, trips, and falls are the leading cause of injuries
on campus, followed by burns, cuts, and hazardous
materials exposures. In December, EH&S implemented
theSafe Winter Walking Campaign
to remind students
and employees of winter walking hazards on campus.
