Dixie State University

Risk & Safety Committee


Dixie State University has a Risk and Safety Committee. Its mission is to promote a safe campus environment and protect the State of Utah and the University from lawsuits and monetary loss due to property damage or theft by reducing risk in our buildings and grounds as well as injury to our students, faculty, staff and other visitors to campus. To do this, we try to limit liability by keeping the campus as safe as possible.

If you are aware of unsafe conditions on campus, please feel free to contact the Risk and Safety Committee with your concerns. It is important to remember that eliminating some unsafe conditions may require significant expenditures, and the University may not have the funding to fix all problems immediately. However, we need to know what the problems are. Forward your concerns to Josh Thayn, our Director, or any member of the Risk Management/Safety Committee. In addition to a safety committee, we also have a Health and Safety Officer. The Safety Officer assists the university with occupational health and safety matters in the work environment.
