Minnesota West Policies

Chapter 3 - Educational

3.20 Health and Safety

Minnesota West Community & Technical College recognizes its responsibilities in providing a healthful environment and the safest conditions for its students. Effectiveness of the instructional programs is in a large part determined by an environment free from disruptions to the learning process. Minnesota West will take all practical steps to safeguard students from accidents or environmental conditions and to maintain an effective safety organization at all times.

Effective supervision of students shall remain in force whenever students are on campus under supervision of college personnel. Students' safety shall be an integral part of the curriculum in all technical programs and in majors that could present possible danger or harm to students. The College recognizes the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 and associated state legislation to be consistent with the purpose of the College. The application of federal and state standards for working conditions, structural limits and acceptable work practices shall be continuous and integral.
