Safety and All Hazards Response

Administrative Procedure 3.806

Elgin Community College strives to maintain and promote a safe, secure, and healthy environment for employees, students, and visitors. The Chief of Police and All Hazards Response Manager are responsible for planning, implementing, administering, monitoring, and evaluating the College's safety and all hazards response program. However, everyone has a responsibility to be alert and committed to safety, and to bring matters of concern to the administration's attention.

ECC regularly informs its employees about safety, security, and health issues. These communications may include supervisor-employee meetings, training opportunities, bulletin board postings, electronic and visual displays, memoranda, email messages, and other forms of conveying important information.

Employees are expected to obey all safety and security rules and to be careful and vigilant at work. They must immediately report any unsafe condition to their supervisor or the appropriate administrator. Employees who violate ECC safety and security rules may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

It is very important for employees to immediately inform the Chief of Police, All Hazards Response Manager, member of the ECC Police Department, or the appropriate administrator whenever an accident occurs, or when an unsafe or hazardous condition exists.
