Campus Safety Committee


The University has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for faculty, staff, students, and visitors, while completing University-related work responsibilities. The Safety Committee ensures there is an infrastructure that provides proactive identification, evaluation and resolution of hazards for the safety and health of employees, students, and visitors.  The Committee oversees safety-related matters for the campuses of the University of Tennessee Knoxville and the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture (UTIA) campus in Knoxville.  UTIA personnel and operations that are not based on the agricultural campus in Knoxville (as regular location of work) are excluded from the scope of this committee, although coverage may be extended to them via UTIA policy. The Committee reports to the Executive Safety Council.
