SRS Safety Resources

Safety Sheets

SRS has developed a series of safety sheets. Safety sheets are designed to improve the safety awareness of employees at the University of Oregon by providing information on specific workplace hazards. Each page gives a brief overview of important information, contacts, and best safety practices related to the topic. The sheets can be utilized for new employee safety orientation packets, as additional written material for training, or as a quick reference for basic safety questions.
