The updated UW Accident Prevention Plan is now available

 

The updated UW Accident Prevention Plan contains new and updated health and safety information and resources for University units to share with employees. In addition, EH&S created a template Supplemental Accident Prevention Plan for units to address site-specific workplace hazards.

The UW Accident Prevention Plan outlines the policies and procedures we should follow to reduce or eliminate anticipated workplace hazards that generally apply to all University employees except UW medical and healthcare facilities. University units are required to document additional health and safety topics, including worksite-specific hazards and policies and procedures beyond those covered in the UW Accident Prevention Plan, and should use the Supplemental Accident Prevention Plan Template as a guide.

Department administrators and supervisors should review the UW Accident Prevention Plan and the Supplemental Accident Prevention Plan with their existing and new employees.

For more information about the UW Accident Prevention Plan and to download the new Supplemental Accident Prevention Plan Template, please visit the Accident Prevention Plan webpage.

See the UW Accident Prevention Plan log of changes for a list of updates to the plan.
