Safety & Health Program

It is the goal of Southwestern Oregon Community College to protect the safety and health of our employees. Injuries and property loss from accidents are needless, costly, and preventable. Southwestern has established a safety and health program to assist in maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. A Safety Committee has been established to aide in accomplishing this objective and management accepts the responsibility of providing a safe working environment.

The Safety committee, Facilities Services Department, and Administration are not solely responsible for campus safety. Safety and health are achieved by teamwork.  All employees are equally responsible for not only their own personal safety, but the safety of co-workers. All employees should understand that safety is a condition of employment. No job is so important that we cannot take time to do it in a safe manner.  Employees are expected to take responsibility for performing work in accordance with safe standards and practices.

Employees are encouraged to provide recommendations for improvements or enhancements to the College’s overall safety efforts and to volunteer their time and assistance to the Safety Committee.  Safety recommendations may be submitted by sending an email to safetysuggestions@socc.edu.

For questions or concerns about health and safety, please send an email to either crichards@socc.edu (541-888-7206) or emerald.brunett@socc.edu (541-888-7229). You may also contact one of the below safety committee members:
