UPDATE: Decommissioning of Facilities Management Policies

After careful review, Facilities Management determined the following policies should be removed from the university’s policy library. Most are tied to outside regulating bodies (e.g., OSHA, AR Dept. of Labor, ANSI, etc.), and restated continuously updated regulations and guidelines. So, information from many of these highlighted policies below will be rolled into one of two manuals tied to two new policies (i.e., Workplace Safety, Laboratory Safety). This will allow us to avoid restating information found in State and Federal agencies, nor require the need to constantly update the policies when regulations change. Those not located in a Safety Manual have been fully decommissioned, as noted below:
