The Safety Advisory Committee promotes the campus safety, security, and emergency preparedness to endeavor to create a safe and secure learning and working environment for the campus community. The committee reviews and makes recommendations on campus safety and security issues brought forth by students, staff, and faculty. The committee provides recommendations for safety policies and programs; and assists with the emergency procedures program. Members of this committee may be requested to serve on the District-wide Safety Committee.
Hold regular meetings once a month. Maintain written records of all meetings, including meeting agendas and minutes, post minutes and agendas on the Safety Committee website. Establish a system to obtain and review safety-related suggestions, reports of hazards, or other information directly from all persons involved in the operations workplace that would help in creating a safe work environment. Make recommendations regarding correction of the hazards. Review and maintain the college red bag emergency response training and maintenance of the active list of emergency responders.
