Health & Safety

Maintaining a safe and healthy environment in which students, faculty and staff can create and work productively is a top priority for the O'More College of Architecture & Design. Implementation of Health and Safety policies cover a broad set of responsibilities and areas of oversight ranging from correct use of equipment to best practices in disposing of hazardous materials. All students and faculty must be aware of their individual responsibilities to stay informed and vigilant about how to avoid any significant risks associated with working with certain equipment and materials. Signage throughout Hitch Hall serves as a reminder about safety regulations. These include, but are not limited to, emergency procedures, hazard communication, chemical safety, protective equipment as needed, safety data sheets, operation of power tools and digital fabrications equipment, electrical and flammable liquid or toxic chemical safety.
