The University of Tampa is committed to a sound culture of education, awareness and following best practices to ensure the safety of everyone across campus. This Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) website has UT policies and procedures, as well as agency resources, to provide information to support these efforts in our workplaces, laboratories, studios and other educational spaces. Everyone on campus is a stakeholder and shares responsibility to actively maintain and, whenever possible, continually improve our culture of safety so that working conditions on campus are compliant with regulatory criteria. When accidents, incidents and near misses happen, it is very important that those in a supervisory capacity notify UT Campus Safety and fill out an accident/incident report. Review of these reports is important for identifying any corrective actions that may be warranted to reduce the likelihood of repeating the situation that led to the filing of the report.

For assistance in obtaining the written UT policies and procedures in other formats or for questions regarding special accommodations or accessibility, please email or call (813) 842-3528.
