Safety Advisory Committee

The University of Oregon Safety Advisory Committee  (SAC) is a standing administrative committee appointed by the President and reporting directly to the Vice President for Finance and Administration.

The purpose of SAC is to assist the University administration in providing a safe and healthy workplace for all faculty, staff and student workers by making recommendations for change on health and safety issues. The committee serves in an advisory capacity on occupational safety and health issues to the Vice President for Finance and Administration. Non-occupational campus safety and health concerns may also be reviewed by the committee, and if necessary, referred to the appropriate university organization for disposition.
