It is the policy of Henderson State University to work continually toward improving our Safety Policy, as well as our safety procedures.
It is the intent of HSU to provide a safe working environment in all areas, for all employees. Accidents and injuries are prevented by controlling the work environment and the actions of employees. Therefore, safety will take precedence over expediency or shortcuts. Every attempt will be made to reduce the possibility of accident occurrence. Protection of employees, students, the public, and university property and operation is paramount. HSU considers no phase of the operation more important than the health and safety of the employee.
Employee safety is to be the first consideration in the operation of the business. Safe practices on the part of the workers must be part of all operations. Employees must understand their personal responsibility for the prevention of injuries on and off the job. Accident prevention and efficient production go hand-in-hand. All injuries can and should be prevented!
HSU will continue to be guided and motivated by this policy, and with the cooperation of all employees, will actively pursue a safer working environment throughout the university.
