It is the University's goal to provide its students, faculty, staff, and visitors a safe and healthful environment. The performance of routine audits and inspections of campus facilities is one method used to ensure a safe and healthful environment. Facility audits/inspections are performed by safety and health professionals knowledgeable and experienced in the safety and health field, and trained in the recognition of safety and health hazards.
It is the Office of Safety's goal to perform inspections/audits of all properties belonging to the University of North Dakota on an annual basis. Unsatisfactory conditions or violations of fire, safety, and building codes will be brought to the attention of the Department Head and/or Facility Manager. It is the responsibility of each Department Head to cooperate with the Office of Safety to eliminate as many hazards as possible. The Office of Safety will provide follow up inspections to insure that all unsafe and hazardous conditions are corrected or steps to correct the hazardous condition are being implemented.
In addition to the efforts of the Office of Safety, each Department Head should establish a safety program within their area to insure a safe and healthful environment. For further information on developing a safety program, or questions concerning audits/inspections, contact the Office of Safety at 701-777-3341.
Failure to Meet Audit/Inspection Requirements
In instances in which the Department Head or Facility Manager fails to take corrective actions to mitigate an unsafe condition, the Office of Safety will send a copy of the delinquent report, along with the latest inspection report, to the next administrative level for evaluation and action.
The failure to correct unsafe conditions may also result in a stoppage of work, until the identified hazards are addressed.
