CAHNRS Safety the “Wright Way”



Working safely so that all of CAHNRS goes home at the end of the day as whole and as healthy as when they arrived is our goal.

We seek to weave safety into our daily activities deliberately by using the WSU Safety Policy and Procedure Manual as a guide. Because we are a diverse college with employees working in labs, classrooms, farms, fields and offices, a one-size-fits-all safety approach will not work. It takes a bit of effort and planning to ensure we work safely. Here is how your team can strive to be safe EVERYWHERE, EVERY DAY.

  1. SELF-INSPECTION – Safety inspections are to be conducted at least annually to identify potentially hazardous working conditions and help with planning employee safety training. High-hazard areas, i.e., workshops and laboratories, should be inspected more frequently. Use the Safety Inspection Checklist to help.

  2. SUPERVISOR AS SAFETY MANAGER – All supervisors should take this instructor-led training offered by WSU Environmental Health and Safety. It includes information on the supervisor’s responsibilities, role in performing inspections, and reporting and investigating accidents. Register online at https://hrs.wsu.edu/training/.

  3. EMPLOYEE SAFETY TRAINING – Safety Training is not a “one and done” activity. Each time an employee begins a new duty or works with a new piece of equipment, a supervisor trains them on safe and proper use.
