The Louisiana State Office of Risk Management has directed the University to develop general safety rules and policies which apply to all employees and sets of site (budget unit)/task -specific rules which apply to a particular unit. All new employees must receive a copy of these rules/policies from their supervisor when hired and such actions are documented by the supervisor on a “New Employee Safety and Risk Management Orientation Form” . During their probationary period, new employees must also complete the Louisiana Tech University Safety/Risk Management Training course, which discusses general safety/risk management policies and procedures in more detail. All continuing employees must attend this course every 3 years. Employees are scheduled for this course by the Office of Human Resources (HR), who is also responsible for documentation of each employee’s participation. The Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) is responsible for course presentation.
