Procedures to keep you safe on campus
Safety is an important issue for the campus and the College is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment.
All members of the campus community - students, faculty, and staff - should take an active role in preventing and reporting incidents that jeopardize safety on and around campus.
The information contained on these pages is intended to provide students and employees with a better understanding of measures that can be taken to encourage a safer campus environment. You will also find basic guidelines to follow when faced with various emergencies. Please review this information carefully.
During an emergency – walk and remain calm. Help persons with disabilities or notify emergency rescue personnel to assist a person with disabilities.
- Be aware of pre-designated primary and alternate evacuations routes.
- Leave buildings in an orderly manner.
- Each employee is responsible to insure that their work area is secure as he/she evacuates. - This includes closing windows, verifying that all persons are out of an area and closing the door as he/she leaves. Do Not re-enter an area that has been evacuated. The closed door signals to all that space is secure.
- Evacuate and proceed to assigned building (the links below detail the evacuation route for each building).
Michigan Right-to-Know laws are designed to provide information to all employees about chemicals used in their workplace. Every College employee is required to complete the College's Right-to-Know on-line training as part of their employment orientation.
