The mission of the Safety Department is to identify common safety and health hazards and establish guidelines for protection against hazards. The department is responsible for all safety plans to include Department of Labor and OSHA standards.
Exposure Control Plan
Craven Community College is committed to reducing the risks to employees who may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens. An Exposure Control Plan has been developed to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Bloodborne Pathogen Standard (codified in 29 CFR § 1910.1030) and to address the College’s concern for personal safety.
Hazard Communication Plan
Craven Community College strives to reduce employee exposure to hazardous chemicals and the overall incidence of chemical-related injuries and illnesses through the publishing of a Hazard Communication Plan. All employees who are potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals in their assigned jobs will be fully informed of the hazards of the chemicals and protective measures to minimize exposure to these chemicals. This type of information will be made available to employees by means of labels on chemical containers, safety data sheets (SDSs), and training. Employees will be informed of any known hazards associated with chemicals to which they may be exposed before their initial assignment, whenever the hazards change, or when new hazardous chemicals are introduced into their respective work areas.
