Facilities Services Safety staff are building a comprehensive occupational health and safety program to effectively identify workplace hazards, evaluate the risks these hazards present and implement control measures that will eliminate or control any unacceptable risks.

In addition, this inclusive program supports employee engagement by supporting employee commitment to and involvement in The University of Texas at Austin culture of safety as a basic principle of employment.

At the departmental level, Facilities Services views safety as an investment rather than a cost, and safety is an important part of the organization’s continual improvement and overall culture. The department pursues a supportive and robust safety culture where safety is understood and accepted as a high priority at all levels within the organization.
