Risk Assessments & Protection Plans

A process has been established to assist departments with returning certain activities to campus, including a template for evaluating the physical workspace and proposed in-person activities in order to design site-specific prevention protocols. 

Departments should read the Warrior Return to Campus Plan 2020 before completing the Return to Campus Request. Campus repopulations will be tightly controlled and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the communities we serve. No unit or department shall return faculty, staff or student employees to campus without appropriate authorization.

Requests to return to campus will be evaluated through a process of risk and resource assessment to establish approval, prioritization, and sequence. Safety & Risk Management (S&RM) will be reviewing each department’s applicable risk assessment and prevention protocols before employees or students are permitted to return to campus.

Part I: Return to Campus Request – Required for both department/administrative/faculty offices and academic instructional/research space

Department Directors/Chairs shall seek approval from their AVP/Dean to begin the return to campus process. Once approved, departments will submit the Return to Campus Request along with the appropriate risk assessment to S&RM for review.

Part II: Departmental Risk Assessment – Required for department/administrative/faculty offices

To protect the health and safety of the campus community and visitors, departments will be required to perform this detailed risk assessment and set site-specific prevention protocols. The completion of this risk assessment template will serve as the department’s Protection Plan as required by the Warrior Return to Campus Plan 2020.

Part III: Academic Instructional/Research Space Risk Assessment – Required for academic instructional/research space

This document provides directions for risk assessments prior to resuming research, creative activities, in-person classes, and similar activities. Due to the nature of such spaces, (group/partner learning, shared equipment, and the use of PPE) a risk assessment must be completed prior to restarting research and creative activities, and prior to in-person instructional activities on campus. Safety & Risk Management (S&RM) will review each completed risk assessment and prevention protocols before labs, shops, studios, or classes may resume.
