Athens campus faculty and staff asked to participate in Risk Management and Safety survey

On Tuesday, Associate Vice President for Risk Management and Safety Joe Adams sent an email to all Athens campus faculty and staff informing them of a Risk Management and Safety survey.


The Department of Risk Management and Safety (RMS) is responsible for coordinating all aspects of risk management, emergency management, Workers' Compensation, environmental management, occupational health and safety on campus. We are committed to preventing fatalities, injuries, illness, and disabilities on the job and in the total campus community.  

The protection of our assets and maintenance of a safe and healthy campus environment is essential for productivity and excellence. The RMS staff is comprised of a group of technical experts, qualified and experienced applied scientists, and administrators. Our job is to ensure that the University maintains a safe and healthful living and working environment. We also lead the compliance effort on campus in order to make sure that environmental, health, and safety regulations are complied with. We provide many direct services to faculty, staff, students, and visitors and offer an array of training courses and related technical consultation.

To ensure continual improvement in the service we provide, a customer service satisfaction survey is provided below. Please complete this survey no later than May 31.
