All faculty members, staff, students and visitors at UC Davis have an obligation to perform their work in a manner that does not endanger their health and safety, the well-being of others, or the university environment. Members of the campus community can participate in making the campus a safe place to work, study, and live by identifying health and/or safety hazards or unsafe conditions by informing those responsible for the problem area.
ECE students, staff and faculty should participate in making the department a healthy and safe working environment.
You are encouraged to bring safety concerns to the attention of:
Lance Halsted (ECE Safety Officer)
Denise Christensen (ECE MSO)
Richard Kiehl (ECE Chair)
Alternatively, you could file a hazard report with UC Davis Environmental Health and Safety Department. Employees or students that bring unsafe conditions to the attention of the ECE department, or file a report of unsafe conditions or practices are protected by law. It is illegal for the employer to take any action against an employee in reprisal for exercising rights to participate in communications involving safety.
