SDSU Research Foundation promotes safety conscious behavior to protect everyone engaged in SDSU Research Foundation business operations..
All employees are responsible for knowing and observing safety rules, to eliminate or reduce hazards, and for reporting unsafe conditions or practices. Everyone must be safety-conscious and immediately report unsafe acts or hazardous conditions to the appropriate supervisor. It is the policy of SDSU Research Foundation that employees may report unsafe acts or hazardous conditions without fear of reprisal. Further, employees may anonymously report unsafe acts or hazardous conditions by writing to SDSU Research Foundation human resources. Every effort will be made to remedy the problems as quickly as possible.
In order to provide a safe environment, SDSU Research Foundation complies with applicable municipal, county, state, federal and other laws, standards, ordinances and other regulatory requirements.
SDSU Research Foundation maintains an Injury and Illness Prevention Program, which includes a program of job-related safety training, monitoring of hazardous materials, building inspections, and injury review. In most cases, employees will receive on-the-job training from their supervisors. Employees will also be asked to attend safety presentations on various job-related topics. No employee should ever attempt to perform a job for which (s)he has not received adequate safety training. Employees are required to use any protective devices that are provided and are cautioned not to remove safety devices from tools or equipment. In cases where professional certification is required to perform job functions, the certification must be on file with human resources before the work is performed.
In case of an accident involving a personal injury, regardless of how trivial or how serious, it is important that the appropriate supervisor and human resources be notified immediately at (619) 594-1088 or (619) 594-4139. Failure to report accidents can result in a violation of legal requirements, and can lead to difficulties in processing insurance and benefit claims.
Employees injured on the job are, in most cases, entitled to benefits under workers' compensation.
