University Commitment to Safety and Health

Texas A&M University (TAMU) is committed to providing its employees, students, and visitors a safe environment in which to work, study, and play. Safety is the business and responsibility of every campus citizen and can be better achieved through proper engineering, education, training, protective equipment, and enforcement of safety rules. Each student and employee is responsible for understanding and practicing appropriate safety procedures for his or her own protection and to protect others. All Deans, Directors, Department Heads, Chairpersons, and Supervisors must take an active role in the University's safety program by initiating preventive measures to control hazards associated with activities under their direction.

TAMU's commitment to safety and health is extended to all members of the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) science operations, including staff located at Headquarters, satellite repositories, and aboard the JOIDES Resolution. This manual is an introduction to ODP's Safety Management Policies for research facilities aboard the JOIDES Resolution operated by ODP/TAMU.
