The Safety Coordinator Program at Texas State University is designed to help the University maintain a safe working environment for all employees and students.
The primary goal of the program is to identify potential hazards and mitigate risks in an effort to prevent accidents that may result in injury. Other functions of the Safety Coordinator include but are not limited to the following:
- Act as a point of contact
- Aid in investigation of accidents that occur
- Communicate safety concerns with the Environmental Health Safety & Risk Management Department
EHSRM is in the process of updating the internal policies within the Public Health and Safety UPPS 04.05.15 to reflect the change in verbiage from "Additional Duty Safety Officer (ADSO)" to "Safety Coordinator."
