Declaration of purpose.

By adoption of the following health and safety regulations the board of trustees of Community Colleges of Spokane expresses its firm commitment to the safety and health of its students and employees. The board further recognizes the importance of students and employees developing safe work habits, particularly in the areas of equipment and machinery operation, and in the handling of potentially hazardous chemical substances. This chapter shall apply to all students, college [personnel] and visitors and shall pertain to all campuses and sites under the direct or indirect control of the district.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.50.140. WSR 03-18-021, § 132Q-94-010, filed 8/25/03, effective 9/25/03; WSR 00-14-007, § 132Q-94-010, filed 6/26/00, effective 7/27/00; WSR 90-21-022, § 132Q-94-010, filed 10/8/90, effective 11/8/90; WSR 87-16-010 (Resolution No. 27), § 132Q-94-010, filed 7/23/87; Order 72-1, § 132Q-94-010, filed 1/28/72.]

132Q-94-020
Rationale.

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.
