Lehigh University's Safety Policy

It is the intent of Lehigh University to provide a safe and healthy environment for all faculty, staff, students, contractors, and others who may work at or visit the University's facilities and grounds. These individuals are entitled to work and study in a relatively hazard-free environment. Therefore, the University will strive to achieve an optimal degree of safety while still providing an intellectual and cultural atmosphere. Federal, State, and Local regulations mandate a minimum level of safety. However, since the management of Lehigh University holds safety in such high regard, we will endeavor to surpass these minimal standards to attain a higher degree of compliance.

I believe that health and safety should be of concern to everyone, as it is only through our mutual efforts and vigilance that we will eliminate accidents resulting in personal injury and loss of property. Each person using University facilities and equipment is required to act in a safe and responsible manner and is requested to report unsafe conditions to the appropriate University official.

Lehigh University has long been recognized for its excellence in academics and research. Through the dedicated efforts of everyone involved, we can maintain a safe and healthy environment in which to continue our educational and research pursuits.
