FPM Employee Health & Safety

Facilities Planning & Management Safety is a service-oriented department committed to delivering a safe and healthy work culture for employees, customers, faculty, and students. This page provides resources for safety practices, procedures, and PPE programs. It is our mission to continually improve the environment of our workforce, maintain high levels of technical expertise through our training programs, decrease our injury and illness rates and act as trusted partners with effective emergency response management.

Although we have multiple campuses to serve, we function as one unified organization where our
leaders are responsible for their respective departments across all locations. Our services are
coordinated through our friendly and dedicated Customer Resource Center team.
