    The Utah State University Facilities Program is committed to the safety and health of its employees. Facilities Safety is a resource for all Facilities groups and programs in creating, supporting, and maintaining a safe working environment.

    The Safety Committee

    The Safety Committee includes the Safety Manager and one member of each Facilities shop. The Safety Committee focuses on communicating safety procedures and program elements to USU Facilities employees. Several of these are listed below:

    • Safety Committee members are responsible for scheduling required safety trainings for their individual crews.
    • Safety committee members conduct at least two safety audits each month. These audits focus on behaviors of co-workers, job site conditions, and most importantly communication with co-workers.
    • Every shop has a monthly safety meeting covering topics selected by the safety committee. The safety committee member is responsible for facilitating the shop safety discussion.
    • Facilities employees are welcome to make safety suggestions, which are evaluated by the Safety Committee and, if appropriate, incorporated into the safety policies of the department.
    • Safety Committee members take the lead in developing Job Safety Analyses (JSA). JSAs set written procedure for job tasks and tools, and correct safety procedures are included within the JSA.

    The Return-to-Work Program

    Facilities is determined to return injured employees to their original jobs as soon as medically possible. The injured employee may have to perform transitional job tasks as a part of the process of returning to the original job.  The Return-to-Work program is established to help injured employees and Facilities work together to accomplish this goal.

    The Safety Incentive Program

    Facilities has a Safety Incentive Program. The program rewards employees and crews who are proactive in their safety approach. To earn the quarterly award crews have to completely fulfill 100 percent of their safety tasks.
