Safety Orientation Manual for Tufts University: Working Safely at Tufts! A guide for new and current employees
Tufts University has a history of excellence in scholarship, of teaching and of service. There is much more excellent work to be done, now and in the future. An important consideration in the planning and conduct of all work at Tufts is the protection of the health of ourselves and others.
Many employees work with hazardous equipment, with hazardous materials, and in a hazardous environment. At each step, these hazards are identified and controlled. The work is completed and no one is harmed.
Tufts Environmental Health and Safety is part of the Department of Public and Environmental. In partnership with them and our colleagues in Human Resources, Risk Management, and Facilities Services, there are resources available at all times to each employee to assist and guide in achieving an injury and accident free workplace at Tufts.
