Safety, Risk Management & Workers' Compensation

Safety is of primary importance in our operations and an integral part of Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Each of us has the responsibility to make the safety of ourselves and our co-workers a basic concern. This objective is fundamental to our well being, as well as the effective operation of SWOSU. As helpful as they are, safety rules alone cannot prevent accidents. The indispensable ingredients of a safe working environment are management commitment, a knowledgeable supervisory staff, an involved safety leader and a conscientious work force, where each individual is dedicated to the principle that accident prevention is an essential part of the planning and execution of every job.
