Introduction

Safety is always high on the agenda at Frostburg State University and it is true that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

This manual is designed to be a general introduction to safety matters and is written as a general guide for all employees. It does not address every conceivable situation, and for the most part avoids highly technical involvement. Nevertheless, the contents of this manual do constitute The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health rules and regulations that employees are expected to follow. Any employee having further questions or concerns should consult with his or her immediate supervisor before doing anything that may place the employee at unreasonable risk. For further consultation, and copies of any rule or regulation, please call the Safety Office at extension 4897.

Sincerely,
Kathy Snyder
