General

Safety and health policies and procedures are established and enforced to protect employees from injury and illness as well as to provide for a safe and healthful place of employment.

Violations of health and safety policies and procedures are considered to be among the most serious violations of University policy. All University employees, SHRA, EHRA Faculty, and EHRA Non-Faculty, are required, as a condition of their employment, to abide by all University health and safety policies and to follow all required health and safety procedures.

Adherence to health and safety policies and procedures is enforced in a consistent manner according to the personnel policies in effect for the particular employee. Disciplinary policies for SHRA employees are found in the Human Resources Manual for SHRA Employees. Disciplinary policies for EHRA Non-Faculty employees are found in the Employment Policies for EHRA Non-Faculty Employees of UNC-CH. Disciplinary policies for EHRA Faculty employees are found in the Trustee Policies and Regulations Governing Academic Tenure.
