    Safety Culture

    At VCU, safety is a partnership and a shared responsibility that requires active participation across all departments and positions.

    Whether you work in or use a laboratory, office, art studio or maintenance facility, or even perform fieldwork off-site, our goal is to help you be as safe as possible.

    Safety Framework

    Our safety framework is based on the belief that we all want to go home at the end of our work day as healthy and as safe as when we arrived at work.  

    To accomplish this, we provide:

    • Comprehensive safety systems and practices
    • A dedicated safety organization
    • Line ownership of safety
    • Multifaceted involvement in safety activities
    • Training to provide the knowledge and skills that achieve desired outcomes
