Classified Employee Handbook

Health and Safety

Everything possible is done to provide you with safe working conditions. Accident prevention is largely a part of your responsibility since accidents are often due to carelessness. Horseplay and practical jokes are strictly prohibited and may be grounds for dismissal. If you should see some unsafe condition existing on campus, please report the condition to an appropriate authority, such as your supervisor, the Department of Public Safety or Physical Plant.

The use of roofs and exterior sides of buildings is governed by the following regulations:

  1. Roofs and exterior walls are only accessible to University employees who have a need for access associated with their assigned job duties and responsibilities. Faculty members and their students may also have access in connection with curriculum courses after receiving authorization for certain areas from the Director of Physical Plant.
  2. Any University employee and/or student found in or on areas described in this section and do not fit the definition given above, will be removed and arrested for trespassing and/or charged with a University disciplinary infraction.
  3. No rooftop machinery, equipment, antennae, greenhouse, repelling anchors (temporary or permanent), or other property is to be installed on roofs or roof edges without authorization from the Director of Physical Plant.
  4. Repelling using University buildings is specifically prohibited.
