Safety & Risk Management

Safety & Risk Management

Welcome to the Safety and Risk Management website. Our site is designed to be a resource for SUU faculty, staff, students and administrators. As part of the Facilities Management Division, our mission is to work closely with you and your department to identify, evaluate and manage risk in order to provide a safe environment for the campus community. We assist with the development of safety and risk programs which include environmental compliance, occupational safety and health, and property and liability insurance.

On this site, we provide links to additional information about commonly used forms (including Certificates of Insurance) and risk-related procedures and policy documents.
