    and emergency equipment hazard assessment for preparation and continuity of operation tasks etc Training Effective training is a critical part of identifying and controlling workplace hazards Good training informs employees of hazards in the workplace and effective mitigation strategies A safety training program consists of the following general components Provide general and work area specific training at time of hire Retraining when the introduction of new materials processes or equipment into the workplace creates a hazard for which an employee is not trained or when new hazards are identified Refresher training as mandated by specific regulations or supervisor observation Recordkeeping EHS maintains training records for all participants in EHS sponsored training Departments and or supervisors must maintain records of work area or task specific training and other training not delivered or organized by EHS All employees must participate in initial safety training at the time of their hire At a minimum this training must include the department IIPP hazard communication MSDS emergency response and life safety Supervisors must also instruct their employees on how to protect themselves from hazards specific to their job duties and work areas identified as part of the JHA described earlier or in compliance with federal state or local regulations Retraining is appropriate when new procedure materials or equipment changes render previous training incomplete or after identifying a new workplace hazard Retraining may also be appropriate when the supervisor observes poor compliance with established safe work practices Refresher training is most often required at specific frequency as part of compliance with federal state or local agency regulations For example annual refresher training is required for employees subject to the blood borne pathogen program Inspections Routine safety inspections are essential for identifying unsafe conditions Supervisors are responsible for performing and documenting routine evaluations of their operations for health and safety hazards and non conformance with regulatory requirements When inspection reveals a workplace hazard halt the related work until a correction is made At a minimum conduct inspections at a frequency that ensures expedient identification of potential hazards Additional inspections are called for with the introduction of new equipment new processes or when an accident or near accident occurs Department heads are encouraged to conduct and document their own inspections and department safety committees can be a valuable resource for conducting department wide safety inspections and providing a second view of deficiencies not recognized by individual supervisors EHS will perform or participate in work area surveys when requested but EHS inspections are not a substitute for supervisor inspections Record Keeping and Documentation Retain records relating to workplace safety including JHAs inspection reports exposure reports medical surveillance reports training documentation accident reports summaries of investigations and other records as required by supplemental specific safety or regulatory compliance plans Departments are required to maintain those records that they generate EHS will maintain records generated through the activities of their office Retain results of employee exposure monitoring for thirty years following the exposure The attending occupational physician maintains medical records Retain all other records for at least five years unless a specific standard or regulation requires a longer retention period Safety Committees In addition to EH S various safety committees are active at FGCU to promote injury and illness prevention campus wide Safety and Facilities Committee informs the Provost s Planning and Budget Council on the status of the health and security of the campus community and its physical infrastructure Institutional Review Board reviews all protocols involving human subjects Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee reviews the use of live vertebrate animals Research Safety Committee promotes and facilitates a safe research environment Radiation Safety Committee reviews projects involving ionizing radiation Department safety committees focus on the specific workplace environment and should be an important part of each department s IIPP At the discretion of the department head safety committee activities may include preparing unit safety plans organizing safety training conducting inspections reviewing department injuries and illnesses and addressing department specific safety or compliance concerns Injury investigation and Hazard Reporting Injured employees must notify their supervisor of their injury as soon as possible Contact AmeriSys at 1 800 455 2079 1 800 455 2079 to file a Notice of First Injury Both the employee and supervisor must call and inform AmeriSys of the injury or illness suffered while in the course and scope of conducting university business If the injury requires medical attention the AmeriSys intake specialist will arrange to send the employee to an authorized hospital or doctor s office If the employee s injury does not require medical attention the Notice of Injury must still be filed with AmeriSys If the injury requires immediate medical attention call University Police at 590 1911 or outside the University call 911 As soon as possible after arranging for medical attention contact the Benefits Leave Administrator in Human Resources and advise them of the circumstances of the injury In addition to the Notice of Injury report complete a workplace hazard investigation report form The purpose of this investigation is to identify any hazard s contributing to the injury and remove or minimize the risks they present The supervisor has the primary responsibility for investigating the hazard with input from his or her Dean Director Chair and other staff Damaged equipment or other workplace property may warrant a hazard investigation at the supervisor s discretion Call Environmental Health Safety at 1414 if you have any questions about this form or for assistance in completing your workplace hazard investigation contact Willie Baca directly at 239 590 1126 239 590 1126 Ideally you will identify hazards during the JHA and address them before anyone is injured Report all workplace hazards for evaluation and mitigation if warranted Imminent dangers are those safety hazards that pose an immediate threat of personal injury illness death and or significant damage to University property Employees recognizing an imminent danger have the authority and responsibility to stop the operation if under their immediate control and to notify the affected employees and a supervisor

employees such as needleless systems or sharps with engineered sharps injury protection Employers must document annually the consideration and implementation of appropriate commercially available medical devices designed to eliminate or minimize occupational exposure Employers must solicit input on these devices from the employees using them in the workplace Sharps Injury Log The departments

log shall be recorded and maintained in such manner as to protect the confidentiality of the injured employee The sharps injury log shall contain at a minimum the type and brand of device involved in the incident department or work area where the exposure incident occurred an explanation of how the incident occurred and recommendations to prevent the injury from recurring Training All covered
