Safety Committee

Safety Policy

Eastern Oregon University is committed to protecting the health and safety of its employees, students and visitors to the campus and to providing a safe working and educational environment.  The EOU safety committee brings faculty, staff and students together in a non-adversarial, cooperative effort to promote safety and health in the campus environment.

Please notify the EOU Safety Committee if you have a safety concern.  Just click on the bar above and then fill out and submit the safety gram and a member of the Committee will contact you as part of our follow-up.

If you have an accident or are injured while at work, please call Campus Security at 541-962-3911 as soon as possible. A safety team, made up of members of the EOU safety committee, will be notified and will meet with you to discuss the accident/injury. It is important to note that all accidents or injuries must be reported, regardless of the severity or whether or not medical treatment is sought, within 48 hours.

Sometimes employees have what are called “near-miss” accidents. The National Safety Council has defined a near-miss as an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so. It is important that everyone at EOU report these too. Call Campus Security at 541-962-3911.

We believe that everyone has a role in keeping all of us safe. Help us out by reporting any accident/injury/near-miss within 48 hours.
