Potential Actual Job Hazards
  • With every job come safety hazards.

hazards specific to your job during your safety
If you become aware of a new safety hazard in
your job, or on campus

Personal Work Habits
WSUTC Promotes Personal Work Habit Awareness and
  • Ergonomics

an ambulance, a fire truck, or a

Non-Emergency Assistance
  • WSUTC provides a Point of Contact (POC) available
    to help you whenever urgent, non-emergency

  • Use the red Emergency button on one of the blue
    Emergency Call Stations if you have no other
    means of calling

  • Use POC to report/request
  • After hours lock-out assistance
  • Building maintenance emergencies (e.g. water
    leaks, day or night)
  • Emergencies you have called 911 to report
  • 911 does not call WSUTC Calling the POC after
    notifying 911 alerts WSUTC staff that an incident
    has occurred which requires immediate action

    campus point of contact 2-7234

place, or remain where you are until assistance
  • Weather or other natural conditions which make
    driving in the local area too dangerous (as
    determined by state and local transportation
  • The local area occasionally experiences icy road
    conditions which make travel inadvisable. You
    may wish to keep a small survival kit in your
    workplace. Diabetics and others with medical
    conditions should be especially mindful of this
    during winter months.
