The UMW Safety Committee is seeking faculty and staff from all three campuses as members to help develop and promote a healthy work environment. 

The committee’s responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing regularly all safety-related incidents, injuries, accidents, and illnesses on campus. This includes investigation, recommendation of corrective action, follow-up, and compliance.
