Be Safe Cougs

Safety Orientation

Do you know where your office’s first aid kit can be found? How about your fire extinguishers? WSU supervisors are responsible for ensuring that employees are aware of current applicable University and departmental safety policies and procedures.

Use WSU’s safety orientation checklist to familiarize the safety do’s and don’ts with your unit.

For more safety information, contact Environmental Health and Safety at ehs@wsu.edu.
