Worker Safety

The mission of UK Health & Safety is to provide a safe and healthful campus for employees, students, and visitors to work and study. This requires more than just complying with regulations and guidelines. The programs, audits and activities that OHS staff members engage in are all part of an overall system designed to help prevent injuries and illnesses: anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control.

Safety Talk Library

Safety talks are tools which can be used by UK  supervisors and employees to increase the knowledge of hazards in the workplace at their specific work unit that poses a risk of causing injuries and accidents. There are numerous benefits in developing and implementing Safety Talks including improving knowledge of hazards among UK supervisors and employees, and the prevention of accidents and injuries.
