Safety, Health, and Environmental Policy

Alfred University's philosophy embraces a dedication to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students, and neighbors, and to the protection of the environment. Therefore, we will strive to:

  • Conduct our affairs in a manner that consistently demonstrates and renews this commitment;
  • Provide safe and healthful conditions and reduce injuries and illnesses to the lowest possible level;
  • Assure compliance with both the spirit and intent of applicable federal, state, and local regulations that provide for environmental and occupational safety and health;
  • Provide information, training, and safeguards to faculty, staff, and students regarding potential health and safety hazards arising from operations and events at the University.

Above all, we will dedicate ourselves to the continuous improvement of our activities with regard to all aspects of safety, health, and environmental protection.

Safety affects our personal lives as well as our educational mission and it is everyone's responsibility to manage by prevention to avoid safety and environmental incidents. I urge every member of the Alfred University community to cooperate in these important matters.
