Facilities Management


The University is committed to maintaining a safe work environment for faculty, staff, and visitors.  The Facilities Management Safety Committee is an important component of the Facilities Management Safety Program.  Managers and supervisors can gain valuable assistance in their areas through a joint effort with their committee members.

Additional resources are available through the Environmental Health & Safety office.

Accidents and Injuries

All accidents and injuries occurring at work or in the course of employment must be reported to the employee’s supervisor, even if no medical attention is required. The supervisor is responsible for completing a First Report of Injury form.

In addition, Facilities Management supervisors must complete a separate UNI Accident Investigation Report to be signed by the Physical Plant Director and sent to the Environmental Safety and Health Office at mail code 0197.
