Occupational Health & Safety at Baylor University
The Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed on December 29, 1970. This act designates the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as the governing authority to establish standards for workplace safety, enforce those standards, and to assist employers with compliance issues. The act mandates that each employer furnish to each employee a place of employment free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to its employees, and that each employer comply with all occupational safety and health standards promulgated under the act. Employees, supervisors, management, and contractors of Baylor University are all responsible for workplace safety and compliance with OSHA regulations.
Our Mission is to partner with the Baylor Univeristy community to facilitate and promote safety, health and environmental management.
