Health & Safety
Carleton College is responsible for furnishing its employees a safe place of employment, free from hazards, causing or likely to cause, injury or serious physical harm. For the safety of its students, faculty, staff, and guests, Carleton will exercise its right to prohibit firearms on campus, including at all public events. Each employee has an obligation to comply with all safety and health standards, rules, regulations or orders issued by the College as well as those of the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act. Working conditions judged to be unsafe should be immediately reported by the employee to his or her supervisor or department head, and the supervisor then is responsible for reporting the problem to the director of facilities for evaluation and, if needed, corrective action. Detailed provisions of the Act are available in the Facilities Management Office.
