Adoption of these health and safety rules by the board of trustees is based on the following standards:
(1) The possibility of accidental injury to an individual exists at all times and in all places and no place of work or any human activity is exempt from the possibility of accidents.
(2) All community college safety programs are for the benefit of the Community Colleges of Spokane and the individual students enrolled within the institution(s). There is no conflict of interests between the students and the college in the area of an accident prevention program; through accident prevention, everyone benefits.
(3) Accident prevention requires both organization and education, consisting largely of the desire to provide and maintain an environment free of hazards through institution of a common-sense safety program and the determination to carry out the program effectively.
(4) Effective accident prevention includes instructor leadership, student cooperation, effective organization, thorough training, and good supervision.
