Occupational Safety and Health Program Guidelines for Colleges and Universities. An Administrative Resource Manual.
Godbey, Frank W.; Hatch, Loren L.
Designed as an aid for establishing and strengthening occupational safety and health programs on college and university campuses, this administrator guide is divided into four chapters. The first chapter defines and gives background information on the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). In addition, it presents a discussion of what the OSHA standards cover and how they are enforced. Focusing on organizing and staffing, chapter 2 discusses formulating program objectives, obtaining administrative support, organizing the program, staffing the program, using committees, generating employee cooperation, and obtaining adequate funding. Chapter 3 focuses on the following occupational safety and health program functions: inspection and abatement procedures; writing rules and regulations; safety and health training; recordkeeping and reporting; accident, injury, and illness investigation and reporting; and monitoring and evaluation of program activities. The final section provides sources of information for persons establishing a campus occupational safety and health program. Included are lists of associations and organizations, private companies, clearinghouses, government agencies, and publications. (LRA)
