​​A safe work environment is essential. By providing a safe a work environment we are protecting our employees and our students. It is important to follow guidelines and procedures to remain complia​nt with local and national occupational safety authorities. The topics and documents below are some of the ways Riverside Community College District follows safety guidelines and keeps its employees and students safe.

Safety Personnel

Each of our campuses/locations has a College Safety & Emergency Planning Coordinator on site to assist with safety issues, regulations, and questions regarding safety. Our Safety Team also consists of a Safety & Emergency Preparedness Manager and Casualty Claims Coordinator.

Safety Team

Safety Workgroup

Each campus has a safety workgroup organized by the College Safety & Emergency Planning Coordinator. The group is designed to help identify and resolve health & safety concerns and make recommendations to the appropriate office or committee in order to maintain safe conditions. Below are past agendas for the District Safety Workgroup.

Injury and Illness Prevention Program

The Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is a written workplace safety program that is required by Title 8 of the CA Code of Regulations. An effective IIPP improves the safety and health in the workplace. The required elements of an IIPP are 1) responsibility, 2) compliance, 3) communication, 4) hazard assessment, 5) accident/exposure investigation, 6) hazard correction, 7) training and instruction, & 8) record keeping.

Below is a copy of the District's IIPP as well as the individual programs required in the document.

Ergonomics is an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely. Ergonomics helps lessen muscle fatigue, increases productivity and reduces the number and severity of work-related injuries.

Ergonomic evaluations are offered for employees at each of our locations. If you are interested in an evaluation, please reach out to you College Safety & Emergency Planning Coordinator and submit to them a completed Assessment Request Form.

Hazard Reporting

If you see something, say something. We appreciate reports of hazards to assist us in keeping our facilities safe for our students, employees, and visitors. The Health & Safety Haz​ard Reporting Form can be completed online to report hazards. The safety issue will then be investigated to determine if mitigations are needed. The form can be submitted anonymously if desired.

OSHA Yearly Reports

Osha law requires most employers with 10 or more employees to keep a yearly log of all work-related injuries and illnesses. A summary of that log must be posted in the workplace annually from February 1 to April 30 for the prior year. We post the summary for each location here as well for employee access.
