Texas Tech University

Commitment to Safety

The "Safety First" culture at Texas Tech University is upheld by participation in safety awareness by everyone. From upper administration to the workers on the lab benches and in the fields, safety is everyone's responsibility. The Organizational Chart below details the breakdown of safety responsibility in academic areas. 

Safety responsibilities for academic areas are outlined inside the University Laboratory Safety Manual within the Chemical Hygiene Plan, Biosafety, Radiation and Laser Safety Manuals. Each individual group's responsibilities complement the others to work cohesively to form a positive and proactive safety culture.
