The OSU-Cascades Safety Committee functions as a vital element of the Oregon State University Safety Program as required by Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. The Committee reviews OSU-Cascades campus internal safety policies and procedures, encourages positive safety attitudes and performance, and serves as the forum for addressing issues affecting the health and safety of all campus faculty, staff, students and visitors.
