The university seeks to provide a safe work environment for all employees. Therefore, every attempt will be made to safely manage all operations and to prevent accidents. If an employee sustains an on-the-job injury/illness, the supervisor and Public Safety should be notified immediately. Public Safety can be reached by dialing 8-6800 and in cases of emergency by dialing 8-1911.
If an employee requires medical treatment between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, Public Safety will transport the employee for treatment to Sinai Samaritan medical facility. In emergencies, employees may be taken to the Sinai Samaritan Hospital Emergency Room at 950 N. 12th St. An ambulance will be called for serious injuries and injured employees will be transported to the appropriate medical facility via instruction of the Public Safety Department.
