Safety on Campus Construction Sites

FP&M Capital Planning & Development (CPD) has many construction projects underway on campus and would like to remind you of the importance of construction site safety.

Before you first visit any construction site…

Please contact the appropriate CPD project manager in advance. Check the CPD project page to determine which project manager is assigned a given project.

When you arrive at the construction site…

Please make sure to:

  • Wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes hard hat, eye protection, high visibility vest, and closed-toe boots.
  • Always sign in at the job trailer.
  • Be alert on site at all times.

If you feel that corrective measures are needed, please advise the CPD project manager immediately.
