Mission Statement

The Safety Planning & Emergency Management Department serves as the liaison between many campus regulatory agencies including, city, state and federal agencies and partners with non-regulatory entities to enrich the campus environment and experience.

Everyone at Washburn is responsible for safety. Department and supervisors are responsible for conducting hazard assessments, establishing safe procedures in their work areas and ensuring everyone has proper training. Staff and students are responsible for learning about and implementing safe working procedures and properly reporting unsafe conditions to their supervisors, faculty or risk management and safety office.

The safety department works with the campus community to provide training and consultative assistance on a wide variety of workplace health and safety issues. You may reach the department by phone or email at safety@washburn.edu
