Environmental, Safety, and Risk Management Committee

The Environmental, Safety, and Risk Management Committee (ESRM) reviews environmental health and safety issues as well as visitor and contractor safety, pollution prevention, building security systems, fleet safety, University-sponsored off-campus programs, special events, and athletic events. 
The committee is responsible for developing policy and procedures to improve oversight of these areas from a safety and risk management perspective. It is also responsible for establishing written institutional policies and guidelines, determining acceptable levels of risk for the institution, approving and endorsing training and audit procedures to ensure compliance with policies, and providing guidance to the Office of Environmental Health and Safety, the Department of Risk Management, the Department of Public Safety, and individual academic and administrative departments. 
The committee performs regular reviews of incident statistics including workers' compensation losses, automobile accidents, visitor injuries, property losses, and fires/false alarms, and provides periodic reports of the status of the University's safety and risk management efforts in these areas.
The committee meets quarterly and monitors the work of a number of subcommittees.
