The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences strives to maintain a safe learning and working environment. Faculty, staff, and students must conduct college operations in compliance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations, and university Injury & Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) requirements.

The UC Davis Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM) Chapter 290, Section 15 – Safety Management Program, outlines the policy for the UC Davis Safety Management Program. Per PPM Ch. 290 S. 15, it is the responsibility of every department head and supervisor to assure that appropriate information and training are provided to employees. Likewise, it is the responsibility of all employees to follow safe work practices and procedures as specified in written protocols and policies.
