Personal Protection Measures

Program Goals

Workplace safety relies on the cooperative efforts of numerous departments and individuals, with the ultimate campus goal of reducing workplace risks and allowing employees to perform their job duties under the safest possible conditions.

As part of this effort, the EH&S department has implemented various guidelines in accordance with state and federal regulations to provide employees with appropriate training and personal protective equipment suited to their job tasks.

Current individualized protective measures implemented at UC Merced include hearing conservation, heat illness prevention and respiratory protection.

If an employee has any questions regarding safety in his or her workplace and/or feels they would benefit from additional personal protective equipment, the EH&S department encourages these individuals to contact our department without hesitation.
