Section I - Purpose

The purpose of this website is to supplement the Health & Safety Manual and to provide information as to where specialized safety information can be found.

The website addresses safety items which are of general applicability across the campus. It does not address the special hazards that may be present in specific buildings or in the work of specific departments such as physical plant. Safety training in these departments is the responsibility of each department.

If you have a specific safety problem that you and your supervisor cannot resolve, then you should contact the Director EHS & Risk Management.

As mentioned in addition to this website, Lamar University maintains a comprehensive Health & Safety Manual. Some of the procedures described in this manual are distributed to all departments. Each department in which there exist special hazards or which require the use of special safety equipment or procedures will have its own safety manual or other documentation of these procedures.
