WELCOME MESSAGE

Our vision at NMSU is to meet the changing needs of New Mexicans through high quality, affordable education and through the creation and sharing of knowledge in the true spirit of a land grant university. The university’s risk management goal is to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, environmental incidents, and property loss. Achieving this goal is the responsibility of every member of the university community.

To achieve our goals, environmental health and safety must be managed as other key activities by integrating them into every process as a good management technique. Every administrator is responsible for ensuring that all research and work activities are conducted within requirements outlined in laws and applicable regulations. Supervisors have particular responsibility for the activities and training of those that report to them and are expected to promote a culture of safety. Every student, employee, contractor, and faculty member must be committed to working in a safe and environmentally conscious manner. For example, we expect all employees to take personal responsibility for their own safety, to be conscientious about the safety of others, and to help identify potential hazards so they can be corrected. Moreover, we must continuously evaluate our processes and look for ways to minimize hazards and implement sustainable and environmentally sound practices.

This Employee Safety Handbook provides information on our safety, health, and environmental policies and procedures. Please read this handbook, as well as, other NMSU safety references and consider safety important to achieve our goals and vision.

Thank you for your support of safe workplace practices at NMSU.

Manuel Pacheco, Interim President
