4 Supervisor’s Responsibilities
Know the TRICK of a good safety program. Train employees on correct safety practices. Report Unsafe Conditions and Incidents. Inspect for work place safety and compliance. Correct any problems found. Keep records of training. Enforce health and safety rules.

5 Employee & Student Responsibilities

Assist supervisors and managers with evaluation of workplace hazards. Provide training and technical resource assistance. Review departments’ safety programs. Evaluating training in departments. Serve as a campus resource for safety.

7 Training There are 3 levels of training: Tier I University
Tier II Department Tier III Local Work Unit Employees and students must receive training on all workplace hazards Training benefits everyone by: improving understanding, empowering people, reducing injuries and improving the bottom line.

8 Reporting Hazards University Policy on Anti-reprisal
“Stanford university encourages employees and students to report health and safety hazards to their supervisor, manager, or EH&S.” “Employees and students shall not be discharged or discriminated against in any manner for bona fide reporting of health and safety hazards to Stanford or to appropriate governmental agencies.” (Reports may always be made anonymously)

9 Reporting an Injury, Incident, or Exposure
Discuss health and safety concerns with your advisor/supervisor. Fill out and sign Stanford SU-17 form. Get forms from Risk Management. Report “near misses.” Seek medical attention for injuries.

Abbott Ave., Milpitas Workforce Medical 201 Arch Street, Redwood City (or for students: Vaden Health Services, on campus) If an injury is work related, medical costs may be covered by Workman’s Compensation Insurance

11 Identification of Hazards by Inspecting the Workplace
EH&S has checklists available. Departments “self inspect.” Management ensures implementation Keep records for 1 year. Correct the hazards identified.

12 Correcting Hazards Correct it as soon as possible.
If you can’t correct it, ask a supervisor or manager. Are you still concerned?... call your Department Safety Representative or EH&S. Facilities can fix things and fund it if it is part of their maintenance responsibilities.

13 Keeping Records When you get training, make sure it gets recorded.
When you inspect for or correct hazards; document that as well. Keep Records for at least 1 year.
